That leaves room to install the pet door.

That's a Dutch door for short people.

How is the old wood structure tied to the new block wall?

In the front I filled the cores and will drill the sill then redhead. The main shop was built by a competent contractor where as the addition I slid back was built by the previous homeowner. I have found time and time again that he never completed his Time Life carpentry series books as everything he touched was wrong on multiple levels, the addition was no exception. Worst part other than not being square, was the sill was KD not treated. It was not rotten yet, but its only 10 years old. I redheaded a treated sill down then slid it back on that, same concept, just a double sill.

Thank you. I wondered because here we have to have j-bolts poured into the concrete that then bolt down the sill with the required square washer. (damn bureaucratic building codes)

Yes, J bolts are required here, no square washer though. There was no practical way to do them so redheads it is. The redheads have something like 10Klb pullout rating, the mortar joint or wood sill will fail well before that.

Small updates, Man door is in and the hole patched up. I cobbled up the right door with parts from both so it can keep the weather out. It will not move, just a filler until I get my new door built which will be in the spring. My left door is mostly built and framed in, just need to set the header and install.
Trusses come today and I have next week off. Hopefully I will get a decent week to work!

Well the process may have been a little unconventional. But it looks like it's going to be way more bedda to work in.
