Hello.... im hoping someone can help me as I don't know if I can safely remove these sticks (they are 3" x 1") im assuming they were put there to hold things in place while the roof was being built but I want them out so I can board the loft out, last night I snapped the longest one that was right in the middle and the roof didn't collapse (it did feel like there was a little bit of downward pressure on it but nothing moved when it broke) all of the big horizontal beams are sat on brick walls and the brick walls go from the foundations right up to the roof (9" thick internal walls up to loft height then single brick in loft) thanks in advance for any help
