What can I build with trusses?

Our builder (who we fired), forgot to tell the truss company to STOP building our trusses...long
We have 16k worth of trusses that won't fit our new home. We are cutting them down and we will use some for interior framework. Some pieces are too short to use...
So I am looking for ideas to repurpose some 2x4 and 2x6...

Playhouse, greenhouse, shed for lawn tools, potting area with roof to protect you from hot sun with maybe 1 side enclosed, well placed covered area to block out neighbors for more privacy with beams across top & maybe vines on it in summer(free standing patio/roof area for table & chairs or outside kitchen with fireplace??

...or try to sell on Craigslist or something similiar. Good luck! Jeanne S.
