    I did two of my sheds. Cut in 25-50 mm celetex (available from Tippers 01562 749800 or travis 01562 747777 by you) Cut this in neatly. Then clad out in quarter inch ply. Paint this and Job done.
    Just for a bit more comfort for yourself, insulate the floor if timber, with floor grade polystyrene between the bearers. Seal in with timber to stop the mice pinching it for there houses.
    When you do start work in there Paul, be careful you don't set fire to it!

    Use whatever for insulation, but then line it with 1/2" plasterboard for fireproofing. just done this on a new garage for the GF's car.

    B&Q are doing rolls of insulation for £3.18 down from £10. I am doing a Stuee says insulating with 2" of glass fibre ( 4" rolls thinned down ) and plasterboard.

    You may need to consider a vapour barrier to prevent damp - you can source plaster board faced Celetex/Rectesil and others in thicknesses up to 80/90mm with vapour barrier insulation - just done several internal walls of a dormer room with 50mm - it is expensive though - £50 give or take for 1200 x 1800mm

    Cellotex (don't buy it from B&Q - it's 3x thr price!) I used a type which has a vapour barrier, the insulation and the plasterboard all laminated in one sheet - brillient stuff - stick it up with blobs of plasterboard adhesive - really easy and quick - and its toasty warm

    I actually agree with using plasterboard for the fire proofing, You can get fire line board (tougher plaster board).

    The problems with this route would be:-
    Damp, unless your really posh and have heating.
    Surface toughness, from impact and side pressures.
    Edge protection, door ways etc.

    There is products on the market to combat these problems.

    A couple that come to mind, Promat supalux or even promax masterboard
    Promat UK - Leaders in Passive Fire Protection Solutions - SUPALUX - MASTERBOARD - DURASTEEL

    Costs will spiral, before you know it and your garage/workshop is worth more that your project/car.

    As we have seen lately on forums and emails what some garages are like.
