I know you cant see the exact spot in the picture, but at the very bottom of these wall studs there is a stud that runs along the floor that all of these studs nail into. It sits directly on top of the sill board. This board is rotten, and some of it has fallen away. I am a little afraid that when i go to nail sheetrock into it, the wall might break loose. That is how little board is left. However, i cant easily replace it, because this wall is loadbearing and if it falls, the roof falls and the place is finished. Is there a way to brace the studs to where they wont break loose? The solution must be able to be hidden behind drywall.
