MAINTAIN RAFTER AMBIANCE INSULATE ROOF

I've recently purchased a 1940's home with 2 floors and a third floor attic space that is to die for. It is a large open space that is suitable for game room and spare sleeping areas. The floor is nearing finished and the roof georgeous with rafters and wood planks. I've seen magazine stories where the attic ceiling was maintained and the insulation was added to the external roof (which is now shingled). Eventually, I would love to dress the roof in metal. Is there a solution??? I hope to keep the rafters, insulate the attic from the outside and finish with a metal roof. The finished attic space will be ventilated and eventually I hope to have central a/c and heat. Incidentally, when I peek through the rafters and planking, I see tar paper. Thanks in advance for any assistance.
