Recently purchased "shack" in the woods. Right now the roof is tin nailed to 1x4's that are in turn nail to 24" center rafters which are really 2" x 6". I'm going to pull the tin and the 1x4 strips and put down OSB, layer of felt and then cheap rolled shingle. How to cheaply insulate the underside of the roof before we rewire. Plan to build a house on property when I retire. Right now I'd just like to be free of the cold. Lot's of places inside where we can see the night sky. Appreciate any suggestions.

You may want to post this question to a different forum, you may get more replies.

A roofer may tell you to install over the tin or suggest something else.

Also, most roofers don't insulate the roof itself because it wil retain heat and curl the shingles. There are designs that call for "hot roofs", but they include ventilation to help cool the inside of the roof.
