Looks like you have the right ideas.  I usually do things twice, right the 2nd time. :)

Thanks Holmes. I'm positive that second part wont happen.

This is a before picture.


This is all rafter ties in place. I'll tir to get a little higher and a better pic tomorrow


I'll post a few more pics of the sistered rafters, the strong ties, and the completed removal of the old rafter ties.

I ran into something similar to this when I added the addition to my sugar house and I learned something from the local building inspector. Collar ties and rafter ties look similar but do two different things. Collar ties are located on the lower 1/3 of the rafter and keep the walls from spreading. Rafter ties are located in the upper third of the rafter and are to prevent uplift from wind.

That's strange I've read exactly the opposite. Here is a diagram from the net. I'm not saying your right or wrong but a lot of sites say this.
