JM and I spent a while taking down lath and plaster on the ceiling on the basement to expose the joists above. We were hoping to get it jacked up to start removing the rotten sill plate. We got it all ready, nails removed, measured and then looked closer and we think the way it all ties in may not be as simple as we hoped. I’m going to try again to find a contractor who will be willing to do it for us… Otherwise it was a day off.
