rotted sill plate, joist ends and stud bottoms oh my.


Thanks Ron, I actually have 3 post jacks supporting the middle beam now. The center post is actually a bit low anyway, so its a good oportunity to straighten that stuff out as well. We are STILL waiting for foundation work to get done

I ended up jacking the house up from the basement. I put temp walls inside but the studs are not connected to the joists so some dropped about an inch. I wish I had jsut lifted it from the outside. I will have to do that now anyway to bring the outside wall into place. Well we are dealing with a LOT of weight, so maybe its better to have BOTH types of support.
