Insulating an old Cottage Walls From the Inside

Postby MrsG » Fri Mar 22, 2019 5:22 pm

We live in a very old cottage with brick walls that have been dry-lined (in the 70s) but the front of the house is still very cold. If we were to insulate the rooms from the inside, could we stick the plasterboard over the current dry-lined walls, or is it better to remove the current dry-lining and use modern insulated plasterboard? If we do this method, would you recommend dabbing it straight onto the brick walls, or using batons to fix it on? Or any other advise for warming up the house! Thank you.
