Squaring up a crooked garage?
I've got an old garage behind our old house. It's in really rough shape - rotten board and batten siding, and the sill on one side has completely rotten out.
I'd like to replace the sill and any other studs that are rotten, put new siding on it and replace the roof.
The problem is that the garage has gotten quite crooked over the years, with a 4" lean on one side.
Before I add a new sill and replace the studs, I'd like to straighten it up. Any ideas on how I can do this?
I realize that a garage in this rough shape, it's probably easiest to knock it down completely and rebuild, but because it's situated on the property line, I've been advised that if I did knock it down I'd have to move it 4' into the property as it no longer complies with city regulations. If I put new siding and a roof on it however I can leave it where it is.
Any tips much appreciated!
