We just acquired a new property and the barn here is kinda strange. As shown in the photos, there is a base 2 by 4 which is running around the slab foundation instead of on top of it. Because of this, grass and other plants grow in the barn between the corrugated metal siding and wood. Plus, insects easily make their way inside and there is some wood damage from them. I also find water damage periodically in the boards as the water can wick up the wood.
My plan was to insulate and finish the barn, but I am not sure how to seal the bottom of the walls.
How would you suggest we set about remedying this?
