Attic space above garage
Good luck with your project as I had a similair issue. I have even spoke to one of our members on here via the phone and got some good advice. However, after all the advice, you are gonna get conflicting recommendations. One will say you are OK, another will say "consult and engineer" and another will say that you are 'Not Ok'
I had consulted an engineer and found him to be totally useless. I got my money back. I consulted another engineer and while he was more helpful than the previous guy, I basically got no official fix.
I have started threads on here, hired engineers, and even spoke with other guys from non-DIY type forums who build custom homes for a living and have recieved answers all over the board from good to horrible. (one engineer told me my roof would cave in, however, it somehow withstood two hurricanes...a CAT 1 and a CAT 2...the CAT 2 was a direct hit with no problems!)
My 2 cents: Hire an engineer (about 400 bucks) to get an "official" text book fix and for liability. I will send you a PM as well. Good luck.
