Insulating a brick wall? I cut it open to find only 2" of space between wood panel and brick...
Question: I have a house built in the mid 60s . I just cut open the back split walls and found the lack of insulation in our brick exterior walls. There were days when the room was freezing so I want to add some insulation without hurting the bricks. Currently the layers from out to in are bricks -- building felt- 1" furring - 5 ply paper-wood "stuff"- 1" furring. The furrings are 18" apart. Should I remove the everything to the bare brick, redo furrings and use the 2" foam insulation for R-10 or do I have to leave space for air? Or can I just use our existing furrings and cut the 5-ply stuff out? Thanks for your help.
