Whenever I'm called in to fix a leak it seems it always goes back to the flashing, particulary where the roofing shingles meet the cedar shakes, most times the cedar sits right on the asphalt, thereby wicking up the water. the cedar will rot and with only 2-3 inches of flashing going up the wall it will not handle a major downpour.
The only comment I have at this juncture is that I like to purchase as dry lumber as possible. Sometimes this means spending more money for good indoor kept studs and covering my door openings with plastic. I know we can't weather but everylittle helps-other than that I loved the video.
When going into a panel, take a moment to see if all the wiring inside is correct and is in the right places. You have no idea what the home owner has done, please believe me I have seen some of the worst stuff that works but is not code or right and is an accident waiting to happen.
