Historic Timber Frame Sill and Joist Repairs

The stone foundation was dismantled and the rotten sills were removed and scarfed to receive new material. New locally-sourced and rot-resistant white oak sills were scarfed to the structurally-sound remaining portions. The three damaged joists were replicated and replaced. The masons can now rebuild the walls beneath the sills.
