Recently acquired an unfinished (3/4 complete) wooden cabin and doing research on what can be done to it. Have zero experience but want to learn before engaging anyone.
The ceiling is as below picture, I guess it was prepared to be a dropped ceiling and attic situation. I want to keep it open like this but remove some or all the trusses and create either full cathedral ceiling or beamed ceiling as per the second picture.
My inexperienced questions are as basic as (a) can it be done? (b) would it be a re-engineering nightmare? (c) would it be expensive?
