Cathedral ceiling
 
4 Attachment(s)

I have recently purchased a house and found this app which has been very helpful.

I have a sunroom that was added in the 80's that I'd like to take the ceiling out and do a cathedral style ceiling. As of this morning the ceiling was about 7' I figured the only way I could see what was up there was to rip the ceiling out. The highest point of the peak now is at 10'.

The sun room was added onto the existing house and there is nothing above it besides the roof. I am going to try to get a professional in the next two weeks to look at it but figured if I could get some advice beforehand it would be helpful. I am not sure what cross beams can be taken out. I read that I can take them out and leave every third beam and raise the third beam up higher. I'd have no problem raising them all and having the ceiling at about 9'.

I will try to attach some pictures and appreciate any suggestions. Again I have already learned lots from this app and plan on learning lots more during these adventures.

You can copy the scissor truss design, where the wall is attached to the apposing rafter higher up.
