Back bedroom Rafters with support stud into bedroom ceiling. Also it has a collar tie but no rafter tie which allowed wall bowing.

Back bedroom with carpet, pad and door jams above ceiling joist.

Attic above Kitchen. You can see original wall sticking out of insulation.

Ceiling joists were installed incorrectly(perpendicular) to rafters.

Rafter to top plate with birdsmouth cut more than 25% of rafter which may have allowed walls to bow out more along with no rafter tie. Left 2x4 under rafter is only a support for ceiling. Not a roof support.

Next we will raise the roof and pull in the walls and add support/repair damaged studs. After that we will continue removing carpet, pad and insulation along with ceilings and wall Sheetrock throughout the remaining 2/3 of home.

We originally thought it would be a quick flip. But after we noticed the lack of insulation in the walls. It snowballed into adding support where needed and possibly an addition renovation.

Raising the roof. I built a temp wall to pull in bowed wall and do wall repair to split top plate. In this picture you can see 2 of the three chains used to pull the wall in.

Living room roof. No ridge beam, 1 collar tie and only 2 rafter ties. At least one rafter split and needs replacing. Plus I plan to add collar ties and rafter ties. I still need to research what to do about missing ridge beam.
