No 1/2 inch foam board is R22. Polyiso board is about R6 per inch.

Ok. Thanks. Still gonna get some since it’s so cheap. But what are some good options for high grade insulation that would be good for walls and ceiling. Also, what good for floor insulation?

If the price is right, go for it. As that looks to be polyiso board 2 layers would be about R6.

On my floor I used 1" pink polystyrene boards. It's loads up to 15 pounds per inch, so I put 3/4" tongue and groove plywood on top using no framing. Worked out well, the floor doesn't feel cold though that would only be about R3.

I used 1.5" Foamular on the floor covered with Drimax (slightly less expensive version of Advantech)3/4" no framing floor is solid as a bowling alley and is warranted to be waterproof for 500 days.I will never know will I? I also used 1.5" Foamular on ceiling and in wall voids created by roof lift. Then covered the walls with 2 layers of 1/2" foamular which got everything fairly smooth
and even. next project tongue and groove ceiling and bead board walls.
