Plasterboard wil go damp and fail in a shed, youd be better of with ply, put some rigid insulation behind then a membrane.

no way plasterboard will get to damp and proberly end up with mould all over it. what ur better off doing is getting ply to put inside it because thats how i lined my shed. proberly be better off with a concrete floor coz when i built my shed i put posts in the ground and concreted inside them then i lined it with marine ply its a little more expnsive than tripple ply butt much more better
