Re: Insulation Question
Quality has no easy answer.
Spray foam is the easy answer and it's what most people do who sell that old home. Although anyone who buys it won’t be pleased.
I'd pull off the wall on one side or the other and insulate it properly. Afer a few hundred years of experience doing it improperly, that's how it's done in Europe; where many homes are far older than yours.
If you plan on living in that home for any length of time, the time spent doing it properly will seem like nothing. Foam insulation doesn't allow the framing members of your home to breath. Foam accepts no moisture so it all stays in the framing members and they rot. Don't do it.
