The house I am framing got struck by lightning

4107 20
The homeowner called me this afternoon ,said we have a lot of storm damage. I got all the outside walls standing . I am thinking oh ****. So I went out there to look at the damage. I have never seen anything like this. One wall was down, but I can fix that in a couple hours.

I'd say you're pretty lucky with all those big gables up. I don't think I would have slept well that night.
You are right. I do feel pretty lucky. The braces on the gables were tore loose, but the walls are still standing.
wow, Do you feel lucky ?

I would have thought there would have been char marks.

At least it's still there and standing.

Glad it didnt do much damage for you.
Wow! Definitely could have been way worse!
What makes you think it was a lightning strike? I have seen the wind do some crazy things on its own.
