Using my phone to post on this site makes me angry, you wouldnt like me when im angry… grrr

No ridge beam, ive tore down too many century+ houses that had nothing but a couple nails holding the peak together. But used 2×4 cutoffs between each set of beams to space them, before sheathing too. I will be tying a couple together at the top of the walls with 2×6s on the new part, majnly for some lumber storage though.
