Progress slowed some in the last week. Did get the attic door installed, and some temp lights wired in the attic to work with. Also got 3 rooms worth of carpet/pad pulled out and hauled off. Plan to start pulling old wire out tomorrow morning...

OMG - that wiring just screams “FIRE” when looking at it.

Those walls look like good candidates for spray foam insulation. What are your plans for those?
Yeah, I'll have to get pics later of the wiring I cleared out of the attic today...53 splices and 2 wire nuts! And we bought some R13 batts yesterday for the exterior walls; I did kinda price spray foam for the shop, holy crap thats going to costs some $$$!

I had my upstairs finish-out done with spray foam in 2013 so I can't recall the price. I do, however, like its performance for balancing the OK temperature swings in an upstairs space. The way it can fill in the spaces in the sheathing shown in your photos would certainly address air infiltration issues.

My sister in-law just bought a new house that is insulated with spray foam. The best I can tell this was sprayed on all the inside surfaces including the decking. It has no inlulation in the attaic, on the sheet rock, and this house seems to be incredabley well insulated, and noticeably quieter as well. She said it is very energy efficient as well. If I were building a new house I would check this out further!

No pics today, but did get some receptacle boxes mounted in 2 rooms and wire pulled between them. Also pulled out probably another 10-12' of old roof (1x's and wood shake shingles) out of the attic; definitely not a clean job today!
