External insulation on a shed?

Hi all,

I have had an idea to create a garden office and can't find any similar suggestions online so am now wondering if its completely crazy....

I was going to purchase the Kinver log cabin from Screwfix, which is basically like a fancy shed but the photos of the inside look quite nice like tongue and groove. I need to use it all year round so will obviously need to insulate and will be installing electrics also.

To make it look more like a "proper" building from the outside and also to avoid covering up the nice inside, I was thinking I could externally insulate rather than internally. I thought PUR boards on the outside and then render? The roof I would still insulate from the inside and then plasterboard, installing spotlights at the same time.

Any advice would be much appreciated! Thank you
