Missing sill plate


Recommended Posts

Looks like the house is elevated off of the foundation for some reason.  If you do that, you need to provide both vertical support and shear strength in that space between foundation and structural floor.  The posts might be ok to provide the necessary vertical support if they were secured to a treated sill plate below and to the structural floor above but where's the shear strength coming from?  I don't see any.
