former owner let termites eat the underside of my 6x8 garden shed. I had a new one built but would like to restore the old one. Termites are dead! Would I remove the plywood floor and try to restore the underside? Someone said I could put in new floor joists on top of the old ones and lay new plywood. What do you think?

Remove all of the affected wood and replace it with pressure treated. Even if all of the termites are dead, there are others around who will attack the damaged wood if they can get to it.
