Can I convert my attic into living space?

15 years ago

I have a prefab trussed roof. There is an attic hatch (with steps that we installed) which we use to get up there. There is a storage space in the attic as well as our air handler and water heater so it is definitely a working attic. In the storage and utility areas some of the trusses are gone. Is there any way to remove other trusses so that we can create more usable space up there without causing our roof to blow away? Would we have to replace our roof with a different kind of roofing system to get more attic space? I'm in Florida where things do tend to blow away.
