The Scissor TrussA scissor truss eliminates vertical and horizontal elements. It creates a more spacious feeling, because
element defining a lower "virtual" ceiling line. How to use it: A scissor truss is appropriate when the ceiling pitch, or slope, isn't very steep. A shallow pitch, like in this example, can still be quite spacious when a scissor truss is used to support the roof.

Create the feel of beams. If you don't have attractive beams to expose, try adding trusses for country style. If you rent, incorporate unfinished wood tones through furnishings and accessories.

The design of the roof truss using the cables
Whether the truss starts as a king post, queen post, scissor or hammerbeam, it can end up being some kind of hybrid. In fact, these days it's rare to see a truss design that's simply just one basic type. Again, the trick is understand what each truss component does and design accordingly. Metal rods
and king or queen posts. And why not pull the tie beam, or in this case the tie rod, higher to open up the space, not unlike the struts in a scissor truss?
