Default Flush Cutting to the Wall

I am needing to replace the wrap around deck on our ranch cabin. The deck is one large "slab" of tongue and groove that runs from the outside to the inside of the cabin with the walls sitting on top of the tong and groove.

My issue is I need to cut the 2" tong and groove flush with the wall around the perimeter of the cabin. I've looked at Toe Kick Saws but can't find one that will cut more than 3/4". Any suggestions on better way to cut the perimeter?

They rent jam saws at Home Depot. It cuts perfectly flush with the wall. Looks kinda like a skill saw.

Will have to look at using one of those, the subfloor is stainless C Chanel so was hoping to find something I could set the plunge depth on but that might not be an option.

If you can use a jam saw. I have a Crain jamsaw I will sell for $100.
It was only used once and has a expensive diamond blade on it.
Comes in a heavy duty carrying case. These are new over $300.

Silly question, but is this a load bearing deck? Will you jeopardize the integrity of the walls by cutting this “slab”?

Could you make multiple passes with a toe cut saw?

Jamb saw is what you need for that long a cut.
