Home built in '64.
Didn’t care much for the quality of the roof framing in the garage, usually there’s some kind of post under the point at which the hips meet the ridge and common rafters. Rafter ties were a little high, too. Walls were all straight. described verbally as poor quality framing, not a defect, and it won’t get a mention in the narratives, since there was no visible failure after many years.
The last place I looked before leaving was in the attic. I’d noticed the garage door king stud (at right side of photo #3 by the CMU chimney, it’s in that crack in #4)and the next stud back in the wall were charred, although the top plate and ext. wall sheathing were clean as a whistle.
I wondered how enough heat got through a CMU chimney wall near the base of the wall to start a fire that worked its way into the attic. Even the garage wall bottom plate had a little charring. Mostly smoke damage in the attic with very little actual char and no smell at all, no char debris on the insulation. Never been inside one that didn’t smell strongly unless it was a real old fire.
Half the home roof (the half furthest from the garage) was trusses. Roof framing in the half closest to the garage and in the garage was conventional. Usually around here, at least above the living space, it’s one or the other.
Roof sheathing in the garage was plywood, in the house was board.
