Note that in my area there are no building codes nor building inspectors, but I don't want that to be an excuse to be too stupid. Thanks!
1)... recently recommended collar ties too, 2)... as well as gable end beam pockets. I'll likely use a larger ridge beam than drawn and tie the rafters into it with metal hangers. 3)... The design doesn't really allow for rafter ties, but wouldn't the loft joists serve somewhat as rafter ties, even though they're 4 feet below the cap rail?
