Found my Problem

The sun came out long enough to get out and do some exploratory work.  Ripped off the gutters and found this, a rotten, soaked eave bulging off the house.

Note how the grit on the shingles has been washed away.

The view from the ground:
Short-list of things to do:

Replace the roof over the closet
Replace this eave in particular and any others that are like this
Redo the floor of the closet.
Redo the dry-wall
Remove rain gutters
Scrape, sand, and paint the eaves
Replace gutters

In addition to that my back door doesn't close right anymore.  Not sure if it's due to the wood swelling or the house shifting.  I'm hoping it's not the latter...
