Ever seen any built like this before?

No problems with the roof structure, it is sound!

It looks like it is added for support, no?

I'm headed to bed, busy day tomorrow (even busier the day after). I'll answer this 1, before I call it a night.

Answer: It isn't going anywhere for a long time. Interesting thing though, I provide my clients with this amazing thing called House fax property report, know before you buy (upfront - no additional charge, and no strings attached). I learned that from my good friend Dr. William Chandler.

This particular residence is located within 5 miles from a fault line. Fault lines in Virginia, can you imagine that?

Goodnight and Stay safe out there. I'm being extra cautious in these mountains, a lot of unpredictables out there. Black Bear and Coyote are overtaking this area.

Looks like purlins with struts to bearing wall. Should be fine. Collar ties in the upper 1/3 of the rafters.
