Image Text: Perspective view (joist shown semi-transparent for better visibility) > floor joist > sill > look for crushing of the sills at the ends of the joists > this is more likely to be a problem where the sills are near grade level (rot problems) and/or where the joists have too little end bearing (concentrated load) > foundation wall
