GBlist: Masonry wall insulation -Reply

The March/April "Home Energy" magazine highlights retrofits to apartment buildings in
Chicago, including adding insulation to the interior of masonry wall.  They used 2x4
studs held back about 1+ inch from the wall (to accomodate the usually uneven surface
and provide room for more insulation) and then used wet-spray cellulose and drywall.

        The building is relatively uninsulated and I am fairly certain there
is very little insulation on the exterior walls of the building.  So my
question is what are some of the alternatives to foam board insulation and
sheetrock to insulate and finish the interior of the building.
