2 rafters are coming down to where there was a wall, years ago. what was supporting those rafters, that i took down, was laughable. now i need to support them. there isn't a ton of weight there. but i think it could bow 2x6's enough to notice. so i am thinking a 2x10 or 2x12 JUST to hold them up.
but, perhaps there is something i am not seeing. if so, let me have it.
The ceiling joist is tapered more than 1/2 its depth so it is almost useless. I'd double the c.j. to the right of window, hanger/double a new built-up beam against the tapered one to carry the roof valley and room c.j.'s. New bearing to earth in existing lath wall. Leg-up cripples to support roof valley from triple (sandwiched side/ exist. tapered).
