porch roof raising and column repair

This house had a sagging porch roof caused by a completely rotten column base plate.

You can see the old base plate was completely rotten and was not supporting any weight.

First, I carefully set up a hydraulic jack with some lumber and shims.

Once the porch roof was raised slightly, I could remove all of the rotten base plate – ready for a new pressure treated 2X10.
