turns out it wasn't so bad! i was expecting it to be caving in and terrible- i thought you would be able to see the sky from inside the bedroom! actually, it was just some wet drywall and a leaky point in the roof. we spent a couple hours replacing the plywood and bracing it, then put on some new shingles and- voila! everything was looking better! we also did some repair work on the drywall, getting rid of the warped parts and making it look better. the whole job, which i expected to take a couple days, ended up taking only about 6 hours. it helped that todd and diana's dad were seasoned vets when it comes to roofing, that's for sure!
