Beautiful design. Where do you obtain the wood and steel trusses? and is ceiling planked across trusses or is it for visual in between. Also if you could share any info on roof system, e.g. ply, foam, ply, underlayment, cladding
Ceiling opened to rafters only in foyer area
Using the structural roof as a feature

curious as to whether the roof trusses as well as the support beams that crisscross the ceiling were pre-engineered and manufactured and shopped to the job site completed? or were they built one by one on the site?

on top of the roof, an intersecting buttress thing like this. Or like the Nation's bank building in Atlanta?
The Scissor Truss A scissor truss eliminates vertical and horizontal elements. It creates a more spacious feeling, because there's

This space feels good. Open horizontal and vaulted upward. The white opens the ceiling and the trusses get lost in the
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.

Roof trusses and structure. But in rough lumber.
Can we open the kitchen ceiling
I love the open beamed ceiling.
The open truss system is gorgeous detail for the room!
The King Post Truss King post trusses are just about
types of trusses, let's define what exactly a truss does.First, a truss withstands gravity and holds up the roof. That may sound obvious, but it's the single most important criterion. The diagonal rafters of the truss do most of this gravity-defying work. But as gravity pushes down on the roof, the walls
Post TrussKing post trusses are just about the most common truss type. They're so named because there's one post, the king, in the center that keeps the bottom horizontal tie beam from sagging.Elements of a king post truss:Rafters: diagonal members that lie against and are parallel to the roofTie beam:

(photo is too dark). (The whole thing is a great looking approach to what would otherwise be ... a scissor truss?) Thx
Do you have any info on the scissor trusses? They are so beautiful!

I love how open the entire room is
than wood for tie beams 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?
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

Can you please tell me the specs on how the trusses were made?
I love how open this room feels!
I love the simplicity and detailing of these trusses.
joist is the horizontal beam of a truss; the rafters form the triangular peak. This open ceiling showcases typical truss construction.
Mixing It UpAn important point to consider in truss design is that just about anything goes once you understand what each truss component's job is. A king post doesn't
One way of giving exposed wood trusses a modern flavor is to treat them in the same manner as the rest of the construction. This Lake House on Long Island gives every surface — walls, floor, ceiling, trusses — a consistent whitewash. With this treatment, the large living space recalls a gallery, where
