I insulated my office

I had hoped to use a small business grant, but it was not clear that it could not be used for upgrades, repairs, or purchasing new assets. I may have been able to use it for my liability insurance and CPR training, but I wasn't positive.

This is my fan fold insulation from an old project. I put two panels on the ceiling and it made those sections of the ceiling 3 on a 90 day.

I have six panels left. Would those be best used with the ceiling above the shelves in the back, the rest of the side, next to the shelves, the back wall (behind the shelves) or behind the metal shelves behind where I sit and work?

Normally you want to use something like R13 fiberglass.

If it was me looking to where apply that insulation, i would prioritize the ceiling.

I'd go the RV route before a shed.

I'd give an old trailer a try before attempting to build a shed too, but there are zoning issues that might eventually render it more difficult to deal with the bureaucrats.

I would do the ceiling. If this shed is like most you have dark colored asphalt shingles on the other side that get hot enough to cook on in the summer time.

Even with ceramic tiles which are widely used for roofing in my country, most of the excessive heat is captured on the rooftop and then irradiated through the whole interior.

Think outside the box.

South-facing first, then West-facing.
