Hello everyone, I'm new here so hopefully this is the correct place for this post. Further, if this has been covered elsewhere a link would work well too. Details of my situation: I have a 1.5 car garage (has an attached open patio, with a block floor, that makes it around 2 cars, but the patio part doesn't need anything done) that is studded walls sitting directly on top of a concrete pad. The footers in most places are pretty severely rotted and there appears to be water damage up approximately 2 feet in some places. My thought on fixing it, which has been confirmed by a Handy-man branch of a contracting company: Support the garage, cut out some amount of the bottom of the wall, place cinder blocks on the pad, and build the wall back down on top of the blocks. This will be by far my most ambitious home improvement project, but I am usually a fast learner. Questions: 1) The overall idea is sound, correct? 2) Would 1 row of blocks be enough, or would I need 2? 3) With the walls sitting on them, would I need rebar or some sort of anchor for the blocks? I don't remember the contractor mentioning anchors, but maybe it's assumed. I wouldn't think it would be necessary, but obviously I am no expert. 4) I assume I'd need pictures here, but how many places would the rafters need support to do 1 wall at a time? (The is supported by four 4x4's, so I'd guess this is a good starting point) Or would I be better off doing it all in 1 shot? 5) To make it more water tight I was thinking I'd find some sort of roll on water barrier, any suggestions? I don't need waterproof, the project is simply to avert future damage to the garage. Thanks in advance.
