residing a poorly done garage...how much foundation should be showing?
 
2 Attachment(s)

i'm a total newb with this type of job, so bear with me.

the garage is a good 25 yrs old, and there is a ton of water damage on the sheathing, as it sucked up water like a straw. the ground seems to be too close to where the 4X8 is attached to the bottom of the frame.

it appears that i have to move some dirt away from the foundation before i replace the sheathing...am i correct? if so, how much, and what's the best way to do it?

at this point, i'm planning on replacing the celotex with some menards 1/2" OSB, then wrapping in some house wrap before siding.

any tips would be GREATLY appreciated.
