    Default Insulating exterior wall with no exterior sheathing

    Can an exterior wall with no exterior sheating only wood siding be insulated from the interior without taking down and replacing all the wood siding? If so, how and using what products?

    Howdy, yes you can. Consider reading about such in another site. This one has many fine articles.
    the one below is a good starting place...

    We had to replace one of the siding boards and when we took it off we saw the paneling that is in the bedroom. We then went inside and pulled down a piece of the paneling and nothing but the outside siding. The house is at least 50 years old...but not sure about the exact age.
