Move a wall

Today I planned to insulate the last wall and clean up so I can start putting in dividing walls on Wednesday. The west wall went smooth, but when I was filling the uneven gabs between the wall and the insulation wall I did notice again there was a very big gab near the old doorpost.

Closer inspection learned the door post was not connected to the floor anymore and was basically hanging there and had moved about 5 cm out.

When I pushed it, I noticed some movement, so time for some heavy equipment. I took the high lift jack from the car and a wooden beam and put the doorpost and connected beam back in its place. This was very satisfying, so I treated myself to a beer while I started to make a plan how to connect this back to the floor, so it would not move back and could withstand downward force. I think I have a plan that will work…
