    Garrett, ...depending upon your circumstances
    & budget, ...I would shop around and find a
    professional structural engineer who is experienced
    in evaluating conditions such as yours........Have
    them provide a professional evaluation & any
    recommendations for: (1) a compliant repair, or

    (2) to be removed and start over........They should
    also provide all applicable Codes & Standards
    that are legal in your location.

    The Sawhorse route is easy once you pay

    You can upload pictures from a cell phone


    Plus sounds like you may have other questions as your build goes
