Rotting beams

The concrete sill under the door was cracked and heaving so to level it out I removed some of the pieces revealing the ends of rotting beams. They are running into the barn at right angles and resting on the foundation. I 'll need a closer look under the first floor to see how far the rot goes. Possibly a post under each up the foundation wall or some cement blocks to carry the weight.
On old building it's a vicious circle. By the time you fix the front door the back door is sagging and falling apart. bill

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Nice job Bill man. Make sure you get a pic once the doors are completely painted. Congrats on a job well done. Looks like your son learned a few things as well. Awesome stuff.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

As posted above the doors may be done, but the track is sagging and the sill is shot and the beams are rotten..... done? Painted for sure but not done.
As far as my son learning a thing or two....possibly.
He announced a few nights ago he was NO. 1 in the World on his Need for Speed computer racing game..."I don't know if it matters" of course it matters. Now, hows about cleaning your room and vacuuming the shop...real world stuff "If it matters"
Things that matter to me are completely different to what matters to him. Go figure. bill

rotting beams

I went back and took some photos of the rotting beam ends and from below. I recommended "sistering" by placing either wood or steel I beams next to the round ones, without fastening/attaching them. There's about a 3" dip in the floor across the opening from jamb to jamb. I'm not a Barn Guy, but I did stay in a Motel 6 where I had to turn the light on myself. Actually I had a Strength of Materials class in college many moons ago. It involved something called Calculus which has long been forgotten. I know enough to ask the right questions and make "suggestions". bill

Sorry guys...got ahead of myself and asked the question before reading the whole thread. Question answered in a later post!

Very nice work on these doors...I bet it was a bugger getting them up and into position for hanging!
