While inspecting a house I want to buy, inspector found that one of the roof rafters is missing 1-2 feet of wood at the end of it. This was done because fireplace was installed and there needed to be space made in the roof for fireplace chimney. Inspector said that by sistering additional wood to missing rafter and adding additional support under it roofter can gain its support back. Is this enough of the support or will I still have problems if additional weight is put on the roof (snow).
Also, do I need to see original permission for building of fireplace and fire department's inspections of it.
In addition, there was a jacuzzi installed on the second floor bathroom. Do I need to see permission for that, and since jacuzzi has more weight than regular tub is there enough floor support for it. How can I find out?

thank you very much,
webtekie
