Sub floor Dry rot under wall


Bathroom had extensive dry rot but most of it easy to get to.

Except where the T&G goes under the non load bearing wall into the bedroom.
Floor is 1 1/8" with 3/8 particle board underlay.

I plan on replacing "in place" the bottom plate that is almost gone and the wall studs that are damaged. Non load bearing wall.

I want to take out as much of the damaged wood that I can access and plan on sliding it under the wall when I remove the bottom plates. The wall will be temporarily supported.

Any thoughts on this or easier way?

It's not a problem:



Notice missing studs against brick wall.
