Although I would have never built a roof that did not have the ridge board continuous, I ran into one this week that has about an 18" gap between rafters at one location. EAch side of the gap has a ridge board. I do not see anything in the 2015 IRC that says it must be continuous and they still allow you to build with no ridge board provided you attach rafters to each other with a gusset.
Any thoughts about if this meets code or not? It looks terrible even if it meets code.
