Maybe like this with a ready rod down to an anchor in the concrete.

We haven't been able to prove the connection to the house is sound so just adding more there doesn't make a lot of sense. Going to the concrete is a sure thing.



You would use a rotary hammer drill with a bit the size of a wedge anchor,
You want one that would reach about the center of the concrete about 4 or 5 inches, and hammer them in and then tighten and add a joiner nut for the ready rod.
