I want to put insulation on that outside wall but there is only 2" of space between the wall and the window molding so I dont know what kind of insulation to use.

Look at all that plaster and lathe......

We are down to the studs in our bathroom and ours must be easy compared to yours.

The outside wall studs are turned sideways. Not sure why they would do that. If it were me, and I was going to the trouble you are, I'd go ahead and build out the wall to get a decent amount of insulation in it and then extend to window casings to compensate.

Fun demo huh ?

You can't insulate around knob & tube
So to add insulation you need to replace that
Have you looked into spray insulation?

Yes the demo was a PITA but I am glad is finished. By the knob & tube do you mean the electric wires?

I am going to be replacing the wires.
What is the reason that we can't insulate around those wires?
I am also thinking about using the space where the shower used to be a make a laundry closet for a double stack.

Now that the demo is finished, I need some advice on what would be the best brand of materials to buy (plywood,cementboard,sheetrock).
I also need some advice on where to cut into the old sewer pipe to install the new one. Here is a pic of the drain pipe. Any help would be appreciated Thanks.

Knob & tube need to dissipate heat in the air

Here is my problem the radiator is real close to the window, so it is going to be too close if I framed the wall out 4" . I am thinking about building a frame 3" or 2" out from the wall and then using a fiberglass insulation. What do you guys think?

Where does that cast iron stack lead to get to the basement? Consider replacing that with PVC too...
