Roof truss weight rating
I bought a house with room in trusses. My concern is about the structure of using this space as a bedroom or 2 as I have no idea what the trusses were designed for. The house is 24’ wide and 56’ long. Trusses are on 2’ centers and have a 2×8 bottom chord and 2×6 top chord. 10’ wide room in the middle. There are no diagonal struts, just vertical 2x4s for the 10’ wide room and one horizontal for the ceiling. Anyone know if this is sturdy enough for bedrooms, or can point me in the direction of someone who could help?
