I have removed my old deck and opened the bottom of the wall because of some water damage to the rim joist. House is 25 years old.
I noticed the subfloor does not go all way the under the sole plate of the wall to be flush with the rim joist. It is 1" short. Is this something to worry about? It is a two story wall.
Also what are these nests?? The wood fragments are from holes drilled for electrical I believe. There does not appear to be any insect damage to the wood. I think the 8 million spider nests along the sill plate joist took care of that for me. The wall was covered with foam board sheathing. There is also a preventative termite perimeter done by a previous owner.
Short about 1":
