I had my first inspection with dormers. Interesting to say the least. First picture shows the three dormers. There was no access to the interior of the dormers, either from the exterior or from the attic. Between the left and middle dormer in the attic was additional framing added to connect the trusses, shown in second and third pictures. These were very close to each other (if you look to the far left in the second picture, you can see the framing shown in the third picture, and at the far right of the third picture is the framing in the second picture). There was nothing similar between the right and middle dormers. Trusses were unevenly spaced. Homeowner said the dormers were built on the ground, raised into position, nailed into place, and windows installed. Comments?
