Early 1900's barn. 1 rafter separating. Help.

Post by zack2 »

1 rafter in the northernmost end of my early 1900's barn is in a state of separation (just got the house).

Not sure how to fix this but looking for advice. Rest of the rafters are good.

There is no ridge beam.

See photo in link below. I circled the area in red. Separation is about 2 inches wide.

Advice appreciated. Barn is in good shape otherwise.
