Rotten day

The IDIOTS who poured concrete right over the shingles have really screwed us! The sill plate and rim joist are pretty well rotten and there seems to be live termite action. (this despite the “termite treatment” we paid about $1,000 for)
So last night we went and got some pressure treated lumber to try and restore this part of the structure of the house before we attach our ledger board.

Here, my brother, Chris works to remove some of the rotten wood, or dirt, as it more closely resembles.
