Guys,

My builder is expressing concerns with movement of the ridge beam. He has built according to engineer drawings, but it moves left to right. Engineer is ghosting me, any ideas? He says need corner brackets at each side to make triangle. Any suggestions on this. Sleepless nights.

When the sheathing is fitted, and the gable panel is fixed to the eaves walls, and the end three rafters strapped to the gable, it should be OK. Should.

Often, a building gets its stability by working as one with other components, not individually.
