Okay, this one is going to be a little hard to follow. The first two pictures are the area that we have to put up blocking so our new post will have something to hold up. All the lumber that used to be in this area rotted out. The third picture is a little further back with a picture of the jacks we have holding this area up. The last picture has a red circle. That circle is where the new blocking is now. This area is now tied together and we will be supporting it with the new post. If you notice… you can barely tell there is replaced lumber inside the red circle.
