I love rotten wall sheathing

For an upcoming article, I'm looking for photos of rotten OSB, rotten plywood, and rotten sheathing boards. The topic: all about wall rot.

If you have a photo you are willing to share, post it here or e-mail it directly to me:
martin [at] greenbuildingadvisor [dot] com.

If you think you know the source of the moisture, send that information along with the photo.

Thanks!

Did my "foam sandwich" question trigger this?! Seriously, this would definitely be yet another in a great lineage of germane "musings..." topics. Looking forward to your article!

Martin, check with Mark Parlee
he posted this photo a while back at JLC and mentioned that he would start a thread about it
I don't think he ever did start a thread.
I also think he has some interesting photos in his "Repairing a Rotting Roof" Article
BSC has a good SIP failure photo
