I have a brick house build in 1857. The exterior walls are brick with plaster on the inside. I’m considering building a stud wall inside of the exterior wall and insulating with mineral wool, and putting ISO on the studs before I drywall. I’m planning on replacing windows at the same time. Most of the insulating articles I’ve read deal with wood wall construction and moisture build up after the wall is insulated. Would moisture be a concern between the new wall and old wall?
