Try putting a transfer beam running in the direction opposite of the joists, about 3'-0" back from the outer edge. Jack this whole assembly up, gradually, to gain access to the rotted sill, and replace it. Once the sill has been replaced, cut the rotted joists back to good wood, and sister up new, longer joists from about 4' back to the new pressure treated sill. Do the same for the rotted studs, cut back to good wood and sister up new studs 3'-0" back to the plate.

Hope this puts you in the right direction.
