Thank You for a quick reply.
Not sure what exactly the end wall is but the wall with the gable is roughly 20' high in framing counting from a waist high foundation pour in the garage.
I do not have a good exterior picture, but here is one. The attic picture was taken inside the right part of the roof, but the whole roof was built that way.
We get enough snow here ones in a while, but my 4 air handlers in the attic do a nice job icing it.
I am debating between the complexity of making cathedral ceiling while remodeling the bath or building a skylight shaft. I would like two large skylights and the bathroom is 60" wide i.e. about 4 rafters by one span of 15'

Considering the height of the end walls, I would have expected to see a strong-back brace at 45 degrees on both ends tied back to the floor joists. Huge attic, Nice. By the way what kind or roof is on this building, Slate? Its really braced well. You get mucho snow?
