I know there are a lot of options out there for wall material, but I guess nothing is cheaper or more versitle than drywall. Unless you want to hand plaster a wall, but that can also be expensive.

Is there any exciting new products out there that are price comparable to sheet rock?

Well canvas is an option but I don't think a tent would go well in the USA winter.

Other than that the usual options are probably more expensive. Hence the drywall being the most popular.

Paneling is always an option, have you checked out the price of drywall lately? It's threw the roof.

You can get some really cheap paneling, that not only covers the insulation but it also doesn’t need to be sanded, painted, or wallpapered.

Just an idea.

I once rented a house at the beach that had T111 grooved plywood siding on the interior walls. It was varnished, and l liked it.
It wasn't flimsy or fake looking like paneling, and music sounded great in there. It was like living inside a big guitar!

Luan or particle board, covered with paneling. Nothing cheaper, and no upkeep like painting, papering or sanding. Ive got some walls I paneled 25 years ago and they still look new. Nice thing too is if you hang anything on them and take it back down, its very easy to hide any holes. Even thumbtacks leave holes to be repaired in painted plasterboard walls.
