What is the best way to insulate an old home from the outside?


Is insulating an existing home from the outside a good solution?

We bought a home that had been recently remodelled - everything about the interior is to our liking. However, we firmly believe the insulation is inadequate. We have been told that blown-in insulation only works for empty walls - our walls have insulation but it does not seem to be enough. Is insulating from the outside by building out something we should consider exploring with a contractor? We have one brick wall and the rest is siding. It seems a shame to waste all the interior fixtures to insulate. Thank you for any advice!
