Question for pro roof framers/carpenters..photos incl
This house is 6 years old. Slab foundation. Roof is 12/12 with some 12/9 pitches.
Took some photos of the attic area and a potential problem area. The one valley rafter was installed with just the very tip of the rafter resting on the beam. Now I am not a carpenter, but I have watched enough episodes of This Old House and read enough articles in Fine Homebuilding to realize, hmm...this was not done right.
Looking at other framing cuts and connections in the attic does not give me great confidence that a fine job was done.
Not a good feeling when this is right in the heart of tornado alley.
So is there a way to fix that valley rafter so it has proper support underneath it?
The last photos show a lot of 2x supports in the attic area. The attic space was wired for a potential conversion to living space back when the house was built.
Anyway, I am wondering if the 2x's that I have arrows pointing to were just temporary supports when the roof was built? Can those be removed or do they need to stay in place?
