Insulating Garage Without Heat


I'm building a detached garage at my house and eventually I want to heat it in the winters but for now it's going to be unheated. Will I have any problems if I insulate and vapour barrier now?

I want to sheet the inside of the garage before I build shelves and that is why I want to insulate it now

Thanks

I don't see why you would. Condensation in the wall is the thing you're avoiding, and it's not apparent to me how you'd develop that problem in an unheated, detached garage.
