@Sachina re "That "right side" (I like to call it the wrong side)":
Of course that was meant as a joke, we could also call it the unimportant, cold, dark side - often the wall isn't even painted nicely or not at all.
In our house and also the one we had near the Balaton it's the northern side - so obviously it depends on which side of the street the house is.

If you have about 500 - 600mm of insulation extending below the level of the floor then you have got most of the cold bridge eliminated. It is probably not worth getting someone in to do the rest. (It is all about giving the heat a long path before it escapes to the cold outside).
