Hi. Linda, made a few observations from you picture.
To make things right, this should have been follow:
R802.3 Framing details.
Rafters shall be framed to ridge
board or to each other with a gusset plate as a tie. Ridge board
shall be at least 1-inch (25 mm) nominal thickness and not less
in depth than the cut end of the rafter. At all valleys and hips
there shall be a valley or hip rafter not less than 2-inch (51 mm)
nominal thickness and not less in depth than the cut end of the
rafter. Hip and valley rafters shall be supported at the ridge by a
brace to a bearing partition or be designed to carry and distribute
the specific load at that point. Where the roof pitch is less
than three units vertical in 12 units horizontal (25-percent
slope), structural members that support rafters and ceiling
joists, such as ridge beams, hips and valleys, shall be designed
The other thing that should have been adhered to is having the rafters line up with the studs in the gable end or off-set no more than 3". [FONT=Comic Sans MS]offset 5 to 6 inches
Also the ledger is too short and should have been continuous from rafter to rafter. yep
I am assumming that these are trusses. conventional framing.
The gable end is not designed to accept lateral loading from imposed loads as such.
Lateral bracing from the main roof truss chords should have been installed and attatched to the gable end framing to help distrubute the loading.
Ideally, the gable end framing should have been framed with 2" x 6" studs.
I am curious as to what type of sheathing they used, it looks like the ZipSystem, but can read a word that says Solar or something. Solar Board by Norbord, OSB with foil facing
Attached is pic of the other end of the sloped roof where it meets the high eave and one looking toward the far gable.
The framing seems lacking. They also framed the purlins with the flat edge up, but attached a 2-by to the edge to give more stiffness.
The next questions is - should I call for more bracing, structural engineer advice, or give areas of shortness and recommend to monitor?
Thanks for your help, Wonderful to find someone home on Saturday night !
