Those trusses are custom assemblies of steel plates, steel rods and wood rafters. It takes close coordination between an architect and a structural engineer to combine materials and calculations into something that looks pleasing and holds up.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

John Hill added this to Houzz Tour: Tahoe Ridge House
"We designed the custom light fixtures at a large scale to fit the space," says Wilson.
A spectacular cathedral ceiling makes this open-plan first floor feel vast, yet the use of wood beams and a wood ceiling gives a nod to traditional rustic lake houses.

Cathedral ceiling/Raked ceiling: A ceiling "characterized by a peak at the center of the room, with the slopes from that peak having equal and matching sides. These slopes also match the pitch of the roofline." More examples

You could have common area face the lake and then have all the bedrooms in the next layer but with windows to capture all the natural light.
