Found this the other day in a foreclosure,
They cut the truss to gain easy access.
They hung an orange tank up side down from a truss over the garage.
At least one of the pipes coming out of the tank, led down through the ceiling into the garage. The Bank has clearly done repairs to the garage walls and ceiling, and repainted.
There was a plastic laundry/utility sink (not presently hooked up) in the same area of the attic.
