    I have the same issue but I don't have the funds to redo my trusses, can I at least walk on the current floor? Or was it just designed to support the roof. I would at least like to use it for storage.

      Anita, you need to do a 15-Minute Consult with me. Look at my cart for that.

    I have a 1900 home that I want to do major remodeling on and add an addition. The current roof is hip with a 9 or 10 pitch that has a noticeable sag on the west side. I plan on adding an 11 foot addition off the back of the house and remove the rafters back 12 feet and bring forward this as a gable roof line. Did that make sense? I too would like to put in bonus room trusses in this area but would the old 2X4 outer walls support these new trusses where I could use the attic.
