Inspected a house earlier and am concerned about the attic. My gut instinct is to recommend a structural evaluation. My concern is the fact that only one half of the space had cords, that looked like they were added as an afterthought. Also where the Rafters connected to the ridge beam (a single 2X10) there seemed to be excessing nailing. I know that sounds like it should be a concern, however it looked more like the person who put it in place was not sure as opposed to just being cautious. There was no webbing. Also, normally the rafter would overlap the wall to create the eave, where these just ended on top of the wall. while there was a thermostat controlled fan, did not appear to be any ventilation from the eaves. A few of my pictures did not come out, but here are two that did.
I know we are not code inspectors, but from what I see in other areas of this house with Plumbing and Electrical, I can fairly certain much of it was done by a homeowner that wasn’t quite up to speed and may not have obtained permits
