i would think you could use the 1 by 6 but getting them mounted could be tricky.maybe pocket holes? as for the metal studs i think you could but stapling the insulation to them wouldnt be very easy.
i think the wood wood be less expensive,too. dont know if you could get metal studs in 14’ lengths but 1 by 6 construction lumber usually can be had that long,too. im thinkin it would be easier with full length material,too.

They probably don t even need to be 2×6 since its not structural – they re just something for the insulation to staple to. Would 1×6 work? or even metal studs?
