Subject: Shop wall insulation: spray foam vs fiberglass

Cropsey, IL
I built a 60x80x16 shop this past summer and I'm looking at insulation options. We are going to bite the bullet and put in a ceiling then blow in cellulose, but I'm undecided on the walls (8x16 bays).

I've seen lots of posts on this subject but not this specific comparison....

The house we are fixing up (on the shop site) is really old so we had the whole house spray foamed and it really sealed up the cracks (we are heating a 2700 sq ft house with only a 30K btu propane salamander heater for now and it cycles on and off). So, I'm sold on spray foams effectiveness but I'm not sure the metal shed has the same leak issues the house did. Plus the cost of 6" thick fiberglass is half the cost of foam (installed). Will fiberglass be "good enough" in a new shop or does the sealing properties of foam make a big difference in a metal shed as well? thanks
