We want to insulate a 3 season cottage to keep it cooler in the summer and warmer in the spring and fall. We are putting a metal roof on and insulating on top of the old one. Is it better to insulate the rest of the cottage from inside or the outside? And what kind of insulation is better? The inside of the cottage right now has no finished walls
