In Response To: Reinforcing attic rafters (Rob)

Homes built in the 1800s were NOT engineered with wind loads in mind.

Unless you wish to engage the services of a structrual engineer, pay big money to have the problem corrected, and have no return on your investment...either learn to live with the problem or move.
