Question

The builder of my house nailed the trusses on the inner wall (almost dead center of the house).Is this per code/right?
I thought that the trusses are to be nailed on the exterior walls only.In doing so that allows the trusses to move.

This is perfectly ok. It keeps the trusses from what is called walking. I have seen many houses when in a high wind, the trusses start walking, and the roof walks right off the house.
