Background: - zone 6a in southeast WI - 1978 prefabricated double-wide, raised ranch - 2x4 framing, including roof trusses - vented roof with continuous soffit vents and a ridge vent…
Many thanks for the suggestions! Existing ceiling is only 7.44 ft. Tall ceilings weren't a thing in 1978 I guess. Right Jon, "wasted" is the wrong way to put it. I'm more concerned about the risks involved in breaking rule 4! I'm going to have local builders give me quotes for new roof trusses with a raised top plate. Which could help solve other related issues like: sufficient support for a PV down the road, extended overhang on south side, easier to remove rodent contaminated attic insulation material, etc.
