Well got started,the insulated part is the addition.boards were not to bad they were 3/4 in and the new is7/16 so I had to tear it off. It appears that there is some of that cellulose insulation in spots and none in others. Have found some patch work.What a mess!

Ok this morning I cut out a section between the floor joists,this is what it looks like from the outside. My plan is to cut out what I need to replace above the bottom timber, and pt a new one in,in about a 32in section. We have a large timber from the side of our barn that feel off last year. It is the same size as what is there. There will be about 3 to 4 feet that I will have to patch in.

That is not what it looks like under the house(ooops) this is.
The floor joists appear to be notched into the timber.
