Hi! First post, I came here looking for some recommendations. My house is not that old, less than 20 years and yet due to some oversight from whomever built it the house is rotted 50% around the perimeter. I have been looking at this for a few years now and am finally going to tackle it this coming summer. This happened for a few reasons. first being the flashing is too low, second the tyvek is cut too high and third they used j channel on the bottom of the siding which acted as a funnel and dumped the water right into the corners of the house. My problem is, I need to be able to jack up the house without tearing the inside apart or without tearing the deck off. That is why it has not been done yet. I cant jack it up from the basement because the load will remain on the wall. I cant jack it up from inside because it will ruin the hardwood flooring and ceiling. If I jack it up from the outside I will have trouble sliding the new plywood and bottom plate for the wall. My idea is to jack it up from within the wall, and to cut sections of the bottom plate and sub floor out, set a few jacks on the sill plate and create a load bearing beam between the studs that I can use lift the wall just enough to slide in about 12 inches of sub floor and a new bottom plate. The problem with this is that I will have to notch a groove in the sub floor and wall plate about an inch wide where the jacks are, to allow me to slide them in. Has anyone ever attempted this on a 2 story house before? and does anyone have any ideas on how I can get the plate and sub floor in without my jack getting in the way? Thank you!
