Garage roof structure

I have a garage that is 18' x 18' with a pyrimad roof. My question is about what supports it, is it self supporting or hould it have load bearing beams. I have a mess of storage racks suspended from the rafters and shoddy looking joists, not really supported . I assume it is just for storage, I'm ready to pull it all down and want to make sure I'm not doing the wrong thing.Name:  IMG_0447.jpg

You have a Hip Roof. I wouldn't cut anything out except the boards indicated below (which I think is what you want):

I would wait for more input on hanging significant weight from rafters. A little weight is OK.
