Where the leaks are (August 7)

Things don’t look as bad as I feared. Bits of dry rot have been found under the decks and in the railings. I think that the water was entering the walls exactly the way I imagined it: water sitting on the roof extension under the deck could be driven under the flashing and paper if the wind was just right.

The rear (east) balcony is in about the same shape as the front. The lack of interior water damage is due to luck: the wind rarely blows from that direction.
