Repairing Termite Damage?

I’m not sure if this is the right place to put this, but does anyone know how to repair this and make it look decent? The previous owner had a termite issue that was taken care of but this post ended up getting pretty chewed up. It’s structurally okay per the engineer, but looks awful!

Patty,

Fire that Engineer. That is not structrually sound. It looks as if it is sitting directly on the ground.

To repair that - Replace the entire piece of lumber, set it on a concrete base. Use a stantion under the lumber so that it does not touch the concrete.
