The walls look like they are block, so shouldn’t need a lot of insulation, if any to keep it “bearable” so I would concentrate on the ceiling. Might check on what it would cost to have sprayed on insulation sprayed on it. Or get rolls of insulation and staple it in place, then cover with drywall. Looks like 2×6 or 8 boards up there. I’d make sure it can support the drywall/insulation. I am do expert, so maybe ask some local experts. The roof doesn’t look like it was built to handle a lot of weight, maybe have to beef it up some. Don’t know were you live, do you have to worry about snow weight?
