I also posted this question in the Architecture section but was unsure if it should be here instead ?

Before I get started, I want to let you know that this is a great informative site ! I have found numerous useful info here.

We are going to enclose our carport and it has a double cantilever style roof truss. We are wanting to make a cathedral ceiling using the existing truss's if possible and have, what you may find as a very stupid question. If you are looking at the truss, the center section looks like it is a triangle of sorts. What would happen if the portion on the bottom of the truss was cut so as to make a cathedral look or would the roof just fall ?

Like I said before, this may sound stupid but I would like to know since I have seen a few houses being built that look like this is exactly what was done to create their cathedral ceiling.

Thanks in advance for helping with this question.

Frank
