Support Post Discovery

When I did the attic remodel/dormer addition back in 2003, all sorts of special attention and expense was provided to satisfy the city’s needs to meet code. To support the ridge beam, two posts were specially located, as well as basement floor reinforcement, etc. As it turns out, all that design work and “inspection” didn’t quite pay off as I discovered this post notched out past the mid-point, rendering it more like a 2x4.

I later replaced this with a nice notchless 4x6.
