I staged the joint. Gotta have the right feel and tools.

Now I ain't a carpenter but I suspected rotten wood. I removed completely rotten wood and put in new treated wood.

Then I sistered new wood into any old wood that was good to lend support.

More blocking, all screwed in tight to good wood. The very bottom seal is an old treated 4x4 and it is still solid.

Then the exterior until my impact drill ran out of power and so did I.

Most of the water and termite damage seems to be on this end.
