next step of demo? w/ link


hello everyone

11W X 22L building. used to have electricity, wood stove and was water tight. wood stove was stolen chimney feel down, electric wire was dug up/eaten by mower. this is how the bldg was when we moved in >2 yrs ago.

now, ive emptied it out (was storage) and have decided to make it my studio/garage w/ electric, heat stove and water (gravity fed from via, only for washing/watering).

since the chimney fell the water has seeped in under the roof and into the ceiling causing huge spot of mold....huge. what should my next step be? its middle of winter here, not too much snow for the area, and i have a hard time sitting still

ill post a short video of the area...its says i need one post before i can post a link so stay tuned.


thank you all in advance for any help

The building needs to be dried in and the roof fixed before going any further.Makes no sence to do any work inside of a leaky structure.
If you can't work outside due to weather I would demo that drop ceiling so you could get a better idea of what is going on with the roof.

great. thank you.

i think it is just leaking in from the area where the chimney was....coming down the roof, under the roof and in the structure.

ill see what i can do with it tomorrow and post back. looks like it will be a high of 32 tmmrw, heat wave.

thanks again.

1. remove the ceiling and check the rafters. Make sure the framing is sound for walking on.
2. 1/4" ply, tar paper and can of roofing cement, if you can't make proper repairs for now. Cover the hole, and if you are familiar with shingles, cement on sides and paper for flashing - sliding under upper shingles. Very temp and working solution.

The wall parts are probably water damaged also.

That chimney hole appears to be mostly outside the wall line--you have some ridge caps missing, that will let in water. Also, those shingles are due for replacement.

did some more demo on the inside. seems like most of it was animal related. but there is quite a bit of water that comes in. we have had rain hard here for almost a week.





a raccoon fell from the ceiling as we (wife and i) were pulling down the tiles. he just looked at us and waltzed out.

the section to the Right by the window (where the old cast iron stove used to be)what you cant see is a huge pile of organic matter. squirrell was living in there for god knows how long. caused all the rot to that wall.

i believe my next steps are to finish clearing out the inside and to buy a nail gun and re shingle the roof. i really wanted to use tin, but cant afford it at the moment. but there are about 10 bags of shingles on the property that were just left from an old job i assume.

what do you all think?
