This easily enabled me to put in loft space anywhere. The center height then becomes 18' clear. Added cost is minimal.
BTW I have 4' frost walls .
I always hear scissor truss cost a good bit more. My original plans were to do something like this. Or maybe scissors over a section.
I don't want walls taller than 12ft, with my max height of 20ft. That same height restriction ends up limiting what I can do with any kind of upstairs, unless I went with a gambrel roof, which I don't want.
