We just had a new AC air handler installed, and it's much taller than the old one. Due to an error on my part, it's actually too tall for the space. And it is deeper than the space between the trusses.
I need to cut a truss chord so that I can make an alcove in the ceiling around the air handler. My plan is run another 2x4 above the existing chord, then use 3/4" plywood on the face of the existing struts and chord with a notch cut out where I need to cut out the chord.
Here is a picture of what I am thinking of doing (red is new 2x4, blue is plywood, black is chord material to be removed):
Is this a good plan? Should I attach the new 2x4 to the existing chord somehow? What should I use to attach the plywood?
