can any one see any issues with this plan I’ve had done.

I can understand how I don’t have a beam for the ridge with I have the dormer timbers connecting straight to the rafters

You need enough detail and drawings for a builder to be able to build it without guesswork.
Do you have structural engineers drawings? Are you doing this on a Notice or as a Full Plans application? Diying or employing a builder?

No I don’t have structural engineering drawings, just architectural drawings showing beam sizes.

This is approved notice work as it’s below 50m2 and also i might to it myself.

im just struggling with no ridge beam to take the load when 99% of dormers have them and not a ridge board
the architect has used a structural engineer and submitted all of these with the building notice application which is approved.
No I haven’t, got a couple of questions really as it should have a beam holding the roff up to the dormer
