What is your thoughts on the ends of the beams having no support to keep them from twisting. I think they could add a 2x10 on the ends of each of the beams and toenail them into the other beam to create some stability. Probably won’t go anywhere but not great framing to begin with. The beams are a triple 2x10 on a 32’ wide home supporting 2 floors and a roof. Not a problem if your columns are only 5’8" apart but here they were anywhere from 10 to 13’ apart and you can see the sagging in the beams.
I know this is beyond the scope of the "home inspector", I just wanted to bring this to the table for a good technical discussion.....Please don't waste your replies telling me this is not our job, I already know that. Thoughts??
