Back patio french doors rotting at the bottom threashold corners on both sides

So the doors are rotting / rotted away in the bottom corners of both sides. One reason is the rear patio gutters were never installed correctly and alot of the water drips / falls full stream and bounces up into those areas.. 

The other day after a rainy day, i noticed water build inside the house in those corners. So since im rebuilding that back side of the house, id like to address this area.

One since the wood has already rotted away and needs to be replaced, i was looking at hardi board, but how to secure and seal the board correctly to prevent more water from coming into the home. The gutter is on the list of fixes, but not as soon as the door.. 

Looking to fix the door correctly and quickly, and then the exterior overhang and gutter.
