* In ''The King of the Golden River'', Gluck is nice to the odd man who visits them but his brothers are rude to him, so the odd man returns that night in his true form (the North Wind or something) and destroys the roof to the brothers' room (in a rainstorm no less), forcing them to bunk in Gluck's bed. (I wonder whether this was really such a great favor to Gluck.)

* ''Webcomic/TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob'' has a running gag of spaceships and other large objects continually crashing into Bob's roof.

* A running gag in the ''Film/LethalWeapon'' movies, as Murtaugh's house got a large hole on its front wall courtesy of Mr. Joshua [[DynamicEntry ramming a patrol car through it to try to kill the Murtaugh family]], was partly blown up by an exploding toilet in [[Film/LethalWeapon2 the second]] (to worsen the renovation that was already being done, shown in several scenes). This leads to a scene in the third where Leo, in an inversion of ShadyRealEstateAgent, provides ''way'' TooMuchInformation about the house's repairs and scares off the people Roger was trying to sell it to.

It's pretty, it's homey, and it has a great view... thanks to the huge, gaping hole in the wall and/or ceiling.

A comedy trope, in which -- whether because of a natural disaster, super heroics, stranger shenanigans, [[ThereWasADoor unnecessarily dynamic entry]], [[CarMeetsHouse vehicular mishaps]], etc. -- the characters have their home or place of business partially carved out and exposed, and are forced to live that way for at least a scene or two. Expect some [[CueTheRain bad weather]] to naturally show up at some point.

* The Douglas' home in ''GreenAcres'' is in a semi-permanent state of disrepair, thanks to the general incompetence of their contractors, the Monroe brothers. (In their defense, they had only done chicken coops previous to this.) They have to make do with a bedroom closet that doubles as a back door.
