Moving a tie beam


I understand and know why and what a tie beam does in my loft.
I have a rather big loft with plenty of space in which I have constructed a hobby room. Unfortunately the tie beam is at a height from the floor of about 3’, which is becoming a real pain to duck under every time. Will I be able to replace it a further 2' up in the same location with taller upright supports. Or would this weaken the support it offers?

In addition, as I have constructed my hobby room I have obviously built a ceiling within my room by adding beams from roof vertical struts across the loft that look like mini tie beams.

I will take some photo’s to add later if this will help to explain my problem.
