Default Basement Insulation.

Old brick laid basement, about a meter of the wall is above ground in places. As you can see no insulation.

Hope this doesn't give ya bad dreams. Feel free to comment.

I'm going to insulate the walls and sill area by next winter. My plan is to put up a stud wall in front of the brick wall. Cover it with flake board or plywood. including between the joist. Then blow the void full of insulation. Since there is more than one way to do something, does anyone see a better or easier way.

I do plan to get some foam on the outside of the walls as time and money permits.
