I want to add a walk-in closet over my garage. The garage was built with standard trusses and I will need to reinforce the area. Who could give me the answers I need to redesign the trusses? The garage is 32 foot wide with a 10/12 pitch. I want to build a 13 foot wide walk in closet in the center of this span. Anything specific I should ask a potential contractor?
My wife and I bought a house in Salem that has had many owners and renovations in its 100 years and we hope to restore it to its original glory. What general remodeling can we do to find out how the house looked when it was first built?
