I’m in the process of expanding the above garage storage attic and have a question about a 2x4 which spans across the bottom of roof truss. I’m assuming it was put in as a temporary support while the roof was being put on, but not 100% sure. I’d like to remove it as it’s blocking access to the storage area I’m adding. My questions. Can this 2x4 be removed without doing anything else? If no, can I install a smaller support (either a 2X4 or use 3/4” plywood angle wedge notched at the top) and remove the larger, lower 2X4? Thoughts? I would only be removing the one closest to the camera. I noticed not all the roof trusses have a horizontal 2X4 at the bottom which is why I’m wondering if I can remove. Thanks in advance for the assist.
