We cut a hole in the floor to make it easier to access the damage. I forgot to take a picture of the damage before we removed all the bad wood. This is ready for the new wood to be put in. The three 4x4 block standing up are temporary supports for the wall until we put the new framing in.
This shows where I cut the sill plate and double rim joist and two of the temporary supports we put in. The bad wood only ran a few feet in length, then it was solid again past that.
Since I forgot to take a picture of the rotten wood before we reomoved it, I figured I'd get one of the pile of wood we took out. Like I said, it just fell apart.
Here's a view of the finished work before replacing the floor.
And another view, from below, looking down the new framing sitting on the foundation.
