Yeah, I do that all the time too. Running the furring strips(studs) horizontal and then putting insulation between them will work great. Its what I did, but then again I used 3" of insulation so my walls are a little thicker, but I'm not too worried about "Thermal Bridging."

I was planning on foam board, then horizontal furring strips, then more foam, then 1/4 rough ply then nice stuff (probably cedar wainscot)

Hmm I didn't think about that. If I put plywood over the framing and then finished paneling or something that would avoid the thermal bridge

Yup. Natster had the idea of ripping 4x8 sheet of non-OSB plywood into 4 inch widths. It may take me forever with the small table saw I've got, but that's how I plan on making all my furring strips.

I did that in 2in widths for my floor but why would you want the true 4in over the 3.5 that you would get from 2x4s?

Got the same plan. Pulled all the inner wall and all the old insulation. I used the 1" white foam board with the tin foil on one side. Put the insulation in were old was then furring strips on each metal stud and just to bottom of windows and and bottom of wall. Will fill the gaps again with 1" foam and then the finish wall we decide to use.
