As a short inspector I don’t have to cut rafters to be able to move around in my attic. Only tall people have to do that. This guy cut 12 of them for a grand total of a 24’ span.
Disposable societies require more storage, and have you checked the rates at the mini-warehouse places lately?
Logical, thrifty consumer: Sees 2x4 at the bigbox for $3-4, thinks replacements are a couple months storage fees, no drive back and forth to storage, gas saved, priceless possessions within everyday reach. This was a no-brainer, in his mind.
Besides, his work looks very neat!
I usually do not write it up until the cut 13 Gary, DEAL KILLER. :mrgreen:
I’ll give a perfect 10 for the consistency of the cuts (he used a chalk line)
Looks like he didn’t cut rafters, but rather truss webs.
I Like It!! I’d Really Like To See How He Fixes It When The Roof Starts Sagging! ](*,)
Hey, you have to give the guy credit, he added 2" x 6" Chords to your right, which obviously are not factory members, and then cut the factory web chords.
See, he new what he was doing. ha. ha.
He will juist blame Gary. :roll:
Let’s see, if I cut these here…then add something here…
Git er done!
I’ve seen some pretty scary stuff in attics. This ranks with the worst.
