Vapor barrier needs to be toward the conditioned space, not on the exterior wall. So forget painting the inside of the siding. Just put up fiberglass batt insulation and cover it with sheet rock or 1/4 inch plywood/paneling.

A 5k btu window air conditioner and a 1500 watt electric heater will be all you need for summer and winter.

I’d build a workbench across one wall. Forget the dust collector, use a shop vac under the bench. Put other tools on wheels so you can move them around as needed. Add some lights, and a couple electrical outlets. You’re good to go at that point.
