What is the best way to insulate a home from the outside?

We live in an old 2x4 wall home that I’m told by the previous owners originally had no insulation, then it had cellulose added decades ago, but the cellulose has settled and there are big gaps at the top. We have decided to strip the walls inside and out, keep the structure but add insulation to the inside but also the outside so we don’t lose too much space inside. Do you have suggestions about how to go about this? I’ve read some of your pages about moisture in walls so I am fairly aware of the issues but still not confident in what is the best approach, any advice?
