Ceiling fan brace or box?

Hi i am trying to install a ceiling fan on a pitched ceiling. How or what kind of brace would work best. I was thinking i can go little off center and use brace to the trusses or pancake box to the stud at the peak? What do you think easier snd better? Here is pics of the room. I am hoping to take power from the switch which powers a outlet currently. I am also going to install 4 wafer canless lights on the corners of the room. Hoping not to hard

to fish the wires.

Welcome to the forums.

You're going to have to check to see what you have for framing where you want the box.
A fan rated pancake box will work if on a full size 2x.

Not going to be easy wiring there. You have limited access and it will be insulated as it's the roof.
