Hello all, I'm in the process of remodeling my kitchen and have recently discovered my (latest) unforseen issue. The house was built in 1956 it is a single story house with a full basement. About 25 years ago my wife had her uncle (supposedly a carpenter) replace a double window in the kitchen with a sliding glass door. In the process they really messed up the header which was above the old window. They actually cut the jack stud and king studs and removed them from one side of the header and left it unsupported. I can see where the roof has sagged and this actually answers some questions I was having with other framing problems I was having. It looks like the roof has sagged about 1/2" since that is the space I have between the cap plate and the header on both ends (the cap plate is still in contact with the header in the middle). I know I need to replace the header with a new one that is 4" longer than the current one and will replace it with 2 2x10 nailed together. What I don't know is how to get the roof back up to where it needs to be. Can anyone offer any advice?
