Well there you go. Guess that's why I'm not a framer.:laughing:There's prescriptive code to cover many load bearing scenarios. I don't use an engineer in those situations.
Gable ends can have significant load. When we do 2' overhang with lookouts back to first common truss, each linear foot of gable wall supports 4 sqft of roof load. At 50psf snow, a 6 foot gable end window header has 1200 pounds of load. Not a lot but enough to be cautious of calling it not load bearing.
