Thanks Joe. How do you think the water is getting in? I am wondering if the bad gutters are flowing over on to the awning and then somehow going down the siding along the wall. In that case the awning is the problem. See how black the gutters and awning are.

If you opened up that sheetrock to the ceiling you could narrow it down.
If it's stained at the top it cold be ice dams under the shingles, shingles cut to short so water getting in behind the fascia.

I have been thinking of opening up the drywall. When I slipped my hand upwards it seems to get dryer the fartehr up I go, but there seems to be wet insulation.
