Double-stud from the interior side?
Is it feasible to install a double-stud from the interior side? I would like to renovate my 70s era ranch bungalow, but financially doing the entire house is not possible. I looked at a mooney wall for a previous house and I was wondering if one could do a double-stud room by room in a house with the following general procedure: Remove the drywall from the wall and ceiling to the extent required, peel back the vapour barrier trying not to damage it so as to preserve an effective barrier, add double studs over the subfloor to the roof rafters, relocate electrical boxes, install insulweb and cellulose insulation, install new drywall.
