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?

One of the many variations of truss design, scissor trusses are just as strong as the more familiar versions.Learn the Language of Trusses in Design | Browse more truss photos
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.

Before I describe the principle 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

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

Do you have any info on the scissor trusses? They are so beautiful!
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?

Can you please tell me the specs on how the trusses were made?
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
