We infilled this stud wall while we were at it.
 Here's a shot of the new 2x6 wall framing. Each stud that will be visible rests in a "birdsmouth" notch cut in the bright green 3x pressure treated bottom plate. That plate is secured to the foundation with new anchor bolts epoxied into the foundation. There's a new 6x8 header over the door opening. 
 Temporary shoring walls propped up the house while we removed the offending lumber. Here we've already slid the new brace into position.
 New 6x6 45 degree knee brace.
