Have quite a large, high loft space here approx 7m x 8m x 2.2m that would be quite nice for a room only costly prob is a king post truss in the center of the area as below. I've been in the joinery shopfitting trade for 22 years but not worked on roofing at all. Due to insurance building regs etc it'll have to be looked at/ drawn up by a structural engineer.

Before I even look at this as a possible project anyone know rough cost & complications of getting the king post & struts out of there to free up the area or an overview of how the weight it transferred. My guess is ot's gonna involve at least 3 long steels running through to the end walls.

cheers in advance
