I have what is probably a very simple (or dumb) question. We have a small Cape style house, and due to the slope of the front roof, the bedrooms upstairs have a bit of sloped ceiling.
Well, in the master bedroom, on the wall towards the front of the house, there is a vertical wall of about 4.5 feet, and then the slope which matches the roof line. No problem there.
However, in the other bedroom on the front of the house, there is a 2.5 (or less) vertical wall, and then the sloped part begins, basically making it impossible to walk near that wall without bumping your head. Behind this wall is a crawl space (which I have checked out, although it is a tight fit).
So, to the problem/question–is this crawl space necessary? Can I move the vertical wall out (like that in the master bedroom) so this room would be bigger (and more useful)? Why is there a crawl space there at all? It isn’t like it would make much sense as storage (since we have both a full basement and plenty of attic space).
