You would only lose about a 5×6 sqft of space doing that. Spread over the entire shop that wouldn t mean much if it were my choice. Be sure to run plenty of outlets and lights unless you plan on surface mounts, even then still do so. I had to scale down to a single car garage shop but I still insulated my block walls as cinder block or concrete block walls are a huge heat sink. The difference in comfort with both heat and a/c is shocking with insulation.

Yeah, we currently have a 3 car garage, with the original garage, being my shop, and it’s seperated by a cinder block wall, from the other 2 car garage. I’m about to kick my wife out of that side, and move the shop to the 2 car garage, as it is already sheet rocked and insulated. I don’t park in the garage, as my truck will not fit under the door. I will let you guys know how this goes with her, as the smaller garage, is a longer walk.
