Hi fellas,

I've done a drawing of the method i described in my previous post,
the blue represents the existing building.

I hope this drawing makes things a little clearer.

The Ridge beam doubles as a new support to hold up the existing rafters and to take the lateral load off the external loadbearing walls after the removal of the ceiling joists, as well as giving a place to connect the new internal rafters ( which are only carring ceiling load and are essentially non structual ) which will form the new studio ceiling.

Please note that i've drawn this using commom size material used here in Australia which may be very different from what is available to you, so these drawings are to be taken as a concept only

I've attached a pdf so you can zoom in for more detail etc.
