Me too. I had a two story “carriage house”, basically a garage for buggys and a couple of horse stalls that had been removed before I got there. Never could heat it; kinda like a corn crib!
But, out here there is a new type of insulation called “NuWool”. It’s basically shredded paper (cellulose) fiber like was commonly blown into attics and walls. But the “nu” part is that the stuff has been treated with boric acid, a fire suppressant, and a pasty adhesive that when the product is “sprayed” on one sided walls, i.e. open studs on one side, the stuff sticks and builds up like foam to any thickness. The excess is trimmed off flush with the surface of the studs and the waste is recycled to the sprayer. It is quite sound proof, vermin proof (boric acid), air tight, and won’t settle (the paste). I couldn’t set it on fire (in a test sample). It feels and acts like Styrofoam when dry. It was fast and 1/5 the cost of DIY spray foam, and 1/3 the cost of fiber glass bats (which mice like). I had it installed in a remodeling project and really love it. 4608 sq ft for $600 six inches thick.

Wow! Really nice. I can picture it all spiffed up with heat & air in the future.
