well i got to mng at about 10. i had to spend about 1 1/2 clearing snow from inside the car because the tarps blew off. once that was dont i took some measurements of the wall framing so i can make a drawing up to have for when the car gets reframed.

then i started to cut out the rotten framing so i could acess the sill. i had to remove some of the rotten wood from the floor. then once that was dont i was able to start to remove the sill.

i have also started to mark and cut the new PT 2x6 that will be used to build the new sill.

i hope next week to remove the rest fo the rotten wall framing and sill.
then the following week build and install the new sill
