    Must be my day.... these gems were next door to my afternoon house. I'm thinking this is where the shingles from my morning house landed.

    I didn't realize Oregon was part of tornado alley.

    Exactly, why get people all excited over the minor stuff?

    1950's Ranch from last week. The house originally had a flat roof over half the house. The owner got a good deal on some roof trusses so installed a gable roof overtop the flat roof. But he had to remove the existing soffit. So he did but never put any thing back up.

    The attic insulation was visible from the front yard. Every ceiling sagged from damp insulation. The rest of the house was in similar condition.

    The owners said the roof was only 5-8 years old.

    Too bad he bought the wrong size trusses. (Kinda like buying the wrong size shoe.) Looks like he missed the truss bearing points by a mile.
