In the souf we'uns don't do ice dam stuff.....

Hotroddie is correct on the lower roof.
I disagree. While this may not be up to "code" and may not be an ideal roofing job, just because it's a 2/12 doesn't mean it automatically leaks. My guess would be, the leak is around the skylights. It almost always is.

Frugalboater nailed this. Absolutely correct.
