Thanks for the insight. I'll be hiring an engineer soon to get more details to see if my project is possible. I have a huge pitched roof and the attic open space would easily be 16 x 13 leaving the existing truss sides in place, removing the middle 2x4s and converting to the pic you posted.
Just curious - to get the floor to carry living space load - how does one go about adding 2x6's or so to an existing truss system?
