I found this gem and had to share.
they apparently didn’t like the original roof line??
At least they did the right thing by removing the top row of plywood and installed a ridge vent for ventilation Oh. but they did not install collar ties, Oh, well,
I’ve run into this a few times over the years. It’s kind of fun being able to run around on a roof while inside an attic. I often go away scratching my head as to why they did it? I can understand wanting different architecture but, at least for me, my checkbook would get in the way.
Any logical reasoning behind it, Randy?
They added a garage to the house with a bonus room and steep roof. They wanted the house roof to match.
See this a lot in rural areas where the original structure was repurposed and expanded.
A big issue for a fire department.
I see this all the time for additions, where a sliver of the old roof remains…
See this every week.
