In my attic, I have 2x4 Studs running vertically from my ridge beam to the main beam running parallel along the attic floor every 6'. Also, I have 2x4's coming off the side of the floor beam at a 45, and they hit the roof walls perpendicularly. Basically, my attic looks like this...... / \|/ \

My question is...

I'm wanting to make my attic into a room, because it is a rather large area, but I didn't know whether or not these 2x4's are necessary support for the roof or not. If so, can I somehow restructure the attic supports to allow for more room while still maintaining the support?
