Hello everyone.

I just bought a house dating from 2005.
A garage there were cons append the west gable and it is so loud that the house about 1 meter.
Everything is concrete block and the frame is made of wood trusses.
I want to raise the roof of garage to bring it in line with that of the house and create a piece in the new space.
I want to do this wood because it is simpler, less burdensome for foundations and autoconstructible.
I can not reuse the current strength, I'll have to create a traditional framework.
My concern is solidarity with the wooden frame, the top of the gable concrete, which is obviously skewed.
Should I break, the top to find the bearings and thus the concrete blocks or screw a horizontal beam on the diagonal and then leveled to secure the amount of vertical the timber frame?

I hope I do understand.
Have you any ideas? Thank you

Good evening,
acid To answer like that without details, I think you must find the horizontal which will be more reliable over time (no side constraints).
