Well judging from the pics looks like it is just the little pop out with the shed roof ? So that is good news ...the problem is the do job rite and rig up support to hold wall sections .but you say Windows are leaking badly so if you tear open wall I bet there is considerable damage that is not seen truly since small pop out I am sure it will be cheaper to simply pull off // demo entire pop out on home and start over with proper flashings for all weather infusion points but depending on local carpenter prices i t should be less than 6,000 dollars I know it could be done here in Portland Oregon area for that
