What happened?

It’s one thing to have a small water leak, but when you let it continue over time it will create major damage.  And it appears that there were leaks all over the house.

This didn’t happen overnight.  It’s years of neglect.

The good news is that someone bought the house in this condition.

The house will surely be renovated completely.

Thank you, C.H., for sending us these photos of an Omaha, Nebraska home.  It needs a little help.  Maybe a new roof, a new ceiling, and a new wall?
