I want to expand the free space for the bathroom in the attic, there was an idea to remove the rafters legs, cut a beam, 100h150mm in the timber facade, and on the left rafters to fasten to the support post. Is such a design is sufficiently strong? The distance between the rafters about 90 cm.

You can, but the cross-section of the beam must be calculated, and it is not clear how this structure will work during the shrinkage of the gable.

Look at the problem from another angle.

If you board up the rafters with battens and make doors, you get a very handy storage closet, which is a substitute for cabinets.
