I wanted to pass these photos along to see if anyone had any thoughts. In this attic there were so many 2X4s going in every direction I got a little confused. This is a 2 year old home.
Does this appear normal? The 2 x 4 “rafters” have their widest side against the roof sheathing from about half way up the roof to the top. Below that they have their narrowest side to the rafters (which seems to make more sense). I guess they may not be called rafters as they don’t extend all the way up as one single 2 X 4. If they are trusses they appear quite “home made”.
In terms of inspecting for performance, everything appears to be performing well. But, I just wanted to hear what others might think. If this is all normal building stuff seen regularly in new construction, that’s great, just let me know! It’s much appreciated. I’ve mostly seen much older homes thus far. I’m training and only looking to learn. Thanks in advance for any comments,
