Rotted sill


the sill under the door is rotted about 2 " deep and 3/4's the width of the opening. After i remove all the rot, I want to build it back up. How should i proceed?

Rotted sill


By sill do you mean the threshold? Or is the wood structure beneath the threshold rotted too? A picture would also help to ensure we are talking about the same parts.

Rotted sill


Attempted to attach photos- unsuccessful.

Threshold is removed as well as part of the old floor.

The sill is in fact two 2x6's sistered. the top 2 inches are rotted and I am chipping it out.

Thank you for your help.
