It may look bad, but when you actually get inside of it, you can see that a lot is still intact. About 2/3's of the structure is intact. The new walls that fell were literally brand new. Face brick backed up by CMU with wall ties. The wind was just too strong without the roof holding the walls together. We're talking 80 mph straight line winds. The floor collapse is because of the new wall collapsing onto the floor. It collapsed one floor, but the floor below it was solid enough to catch a good chunk of the debris, and the first floor didn't even sag under a huge load. The house is solid, and will only be more solid once we put it back together. I have put back together much worse than this at my day job. It may not make sense to those that don't work with these buildings on a regular basis, but it does to us. And insurance won't pay to bulldoze it. I can only get a payout for clean-up and repair, and full demo would be very expensive at this point.
