Ooohh, not even enough information.

Can you be more specific about what it is you are trying to do?

Maybe a picture or two?

Andy.

IF it's just a slab, and depending on how much needs to be done.....you can build a temporary supporting wall inside the existing wall. then cut out the old sill and any bad studs, and replace with PT.

But, as mentioned, pictures would make this easier to answer.
