How about a 46 1/2" hallway joining the two areas  ?

Not really sure if chief has a way of doing that or not and would have to mess with it quite a bit to know for sure.  The interaction with the truss base complicates things a lot.  Not saying it can't be done but it might be a manual build.

You can also edit the truss envelopes in Section view which may be the more efficient way to go if it has to be a manual build.

Actually not quite as bad as I first imagined.  Make a break in the bottom of the truss base a peel it up then deselect "Attic Truss" for the frame over trusses and rebuild them.  Also need to make a break in the attic room below so that the ceiling carries through.  Then re-frame for the missing truss.  See incomplete concept test plan.
