Our stucco house was built in 1927. We just discovered that a previous contractor, when replacing plaster walls with drywall, installed insulation without a vapor barrier. It also seems that flanges on Andersen windows may have been removed when they were installed. The wall is now open. We can see stucco and metal lathe from the inside. There is very little of the original wood sheathing remaining. This problem may also exist in the room directly above, on the second floor.

It has been recommended that new walls be built and that the existing stucco be removed and replaced. Is there another, more economical way of doing this?

Thank you.

This won't answer your question here but it may help you to figure out another way.
call up some of your local builders (Contractors) and have some of them come out and give you an estimate or opinion,if you only have one guy looked at it then this si the only sorce of info you are going off from.Most will come out for free to give you a bid.
