Are all rafters requred to have ceiling ties or is there a minimum rafter heigth before they are required. By the veiwing of this photo what would you say for the rafters over the dormer? needed or not?
Rafters run around 12 ft on the end to less than 2 ft at the top of the roof connection.
The IRC gives little detail other that where they are needed.
I don’t either and see this quite often. It was mostly trusses with the exception of the built out room over the front porch.
The home was only 11 years old but had two prior inspections before me. One inspector was a part timer who is a full time building inspector.
Both prior inspectors called this out according to the seller.
At most you would get half of them corrected before you about ran out of room.
