Default Rafters

I doubt its structural in that case then. If idt was supposed to be then its
hard luck!

In my double hipped roof there was a timber nailed at an angle between two
of the centre rafters. It was in the way when I came to fit a loft ladder
so I removed it!
I assumed it was there just to hold them in position when the timbers were
being installed when the house was being built..Sorry I cannot elaborate
with pictures, but do you think this could be likely? It wasn't nailed
particularly well
