Wall down

Plasterboard wall blew down due to high winds and bad workmanship.

Under the bits are my LT, my R1200C Cruiser and a friends limited edition #105 out of 200 HD valued at around $ 60.000.

What damage do you think has been done ?

Hopefully not to heavy, and damage minimal. So sad.

Re: Wall down

Can't tell from here. I'd be for trying to lift the rubble off - starting with the part nearest the wall - something is holding that up.

Re: Wall down

It looks like the wall was built with metal studs. Drywall is heavy, but maybe the studs managed to slow fall down enough to minimize the damage. Not sure I would want to look under there....
