This is a problem that will cost the homeowner a big repair bill in years to come if not corrected soon.  Look at the flashing, notice that it is outside and on top of the siding corner molding.  When it rains, where will the water be draining?   Under the shingles and into the house.

Here's a house that's using engineered "I" joists to support the floor instead of dimensional lumber. Using these joists allows the builder to span a much longer area compared to dimensional lumber. How effective do you think the joist pictured to the left is?
Hint: Look at the waste elbow coming through the floor (and through the "I" joist).
