Forum Title: Stumped By Rafters
Hi. I am building a P&B garage 24x28. I am sticking in the roof open span. I have my posts and headers up and top plates in and began to put in the rafters which were all cut from the same pattern. I have the front side in and had started on the back side when I realized that the birds mouths were pulling off of the top plate. By the time I had gotten about 6 rafters in the birdsmouth was off the plate by 2. I have checked the posts for plumb the building for square and the outer walls for width and all are witin spec. I am really stumped here because there are no gaps in the front side of the rafters which would indicate that the ridge beam shifted and it is very obvious that the ridge beam is still straight. Any advice on what to check next. I am really stumped here as evidenced by my asking total strangers for help and with no visual aide. DOH!!
