I didn’t get much time on the project today but I did cut spacers to put under the seat of both hip rafter birdsmouths. Predictably, this solved the non-alignment problem discussed yesterday.
However, putting in the spacers moved the heals of the birdsmouths away from the side face of the wall plate leaving a gap. See the before and after images below.
I now need to decide if I can live with this or whether I should cut new hip rafters. I suspect the answer will be “no”. But I’ll sleep on it.
