Attic remodel


I'd like to turn my large attic into a spare bedroom, but I'd have to remove some of the 2x4s. Attached is a sketch of how the 2x4s are setup...the base of the triangle which supports the 2nd floor ceiling is about 40 feet. Is this a truss? If so is it possible to convert it into a stick roof or some other solution without replacing the entire roof?

It's a truss. Don't touch them, don't cut into them, don't alter them.

If you want to add onto your 2nd floor, contact an architect/engineer.....
