Insulating inside of brick wall
I am renovating a 100 year old house, it has load bearing exterior brick walls (2 layers), and the original plaster and lath was set off about 3/4″ off the inner brick face.
Needless to say I would like to insulate the interior face of the brick.
I’m framing with 2×2 almost against the brick just to run some cables and outlets and sheet rocking it up.
I saw post regarding this topic, but they were dated a while back, and I wanted to see if there has been any new advances or suggestions to this.
I get the general idea of needing the brick to breathe and dry on the inside, but not sure if that is still necessary with a double wide brick wall, although I cannot confirm yet if there is a space between them.
