I am looking into relocating a house and the roof and rafters have to be removed/cut in order for the house to be moved at a reasonable rate. I am being told that the rafters may be "scabbed" back together without compromising the safety of the roof. I am looking for suggestions and thoughts from the experts. Any help would be appreciated!

Check with your Building Inspection Department to see if they will approve it.
It sounds like it would be O.K. to me, but I'm not a pro. Maybe one of the contractors in here can give you good advice about it. (Jack? some help? Anyone else?)
Good luck!
