Rotten floor joist at main support beam.


In the process of preparing my home for sale I was replacing some water damaged sub-floor. After removing the damaged flooring I noticed that a small portion of the of the floor joists directly under the affected area are also rotted ... not completely . I understand how to repair them but where they are rotted is where they attach to main support beam under the house which is also slightly rotted. I was hoping to get a few tips on how to proceed with the repairs. I am not in a position to spend alot of money so was hoping to do the repairs myself.

Thanks in advance.
