Blowing in cellulose insulation into wall cavity from the attic?

I have a single story house, and would like to install dense pack blown in cellulose insulation into my empty wall cavities.
The first floor wall cavities are accessible from the cathedral style attic.
It seems like it would be easiest to blow cellulose insulation into the empty wall cavities from inside the attic, instead of drilling holes on the outside of the wall.
Of course i would still have to drill a few holes to insulate the wall cavities under the windows.

Would this work? How would i do this? I couldn't find much information about this method online.

Thanks

-Miles

What type siding is there?
Is this a balloon framed house?
Is there any insulation in the walls at all now?

Welcome to the forums Miles!

Have you verified you have enough access from the attic? no top plate blocking the top of the wall cavity?
