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?

These are scissor trusses and is what I was referring to in my comment on the crossed pieces.

The Scissor TrussA scissor truss eliminates vertical and horizontal elements. It creates a more spacious feeling, because there's no horizontal
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.

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
King 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:
of the truss, spanning from wall to wall (or rafter to rafter)King post: connects the tie beam to the point where the two rafters meetStruts: diagonals that connect the tie beam to the raftersHow to use it: A king post truss is often used in vaulted spaces where the designer wants to simultaneously achieve
floor trusses run across to give the floor dimensional strength...i realize the strength of the floor trusses and also the actual vaulted truss has to be build strong enough to handle the weight of the second floor..can you give me some insight on this..thank you Daniel Sanders Honolulu, Hawaii
ive built houses before..rolled plenty of trusses..I am planning on a buy a home in the port angeles area..need a lot of remodeling! but the square footage and land are a steal..I want a second floor and I have the knowledge to build it! building a vaulted ceiling on a first floor

How difficult is it to maintain/clean a ceiling system like this? Are the trusses dust collectors? Will this system last, say, 30 years without having to replace a main beam?
Love the open trusses in this photo.

Hammerbeam trusses really come into play in large spaces, where their scale and quality resonates. A hammerbeam truss is appropriate for baronial-style halls and barns, or some combination of the two.

Adding trusses to make a vaulted ceiling
r 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, which

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 have to be made of wood
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 objects stand out from
when the truss components are visually articulated, as in this example.

Dramatic ceiling trusses can actually be created with faux wood beams, trusses and planks that look virtually almost identical to natural wood

hammerbeam truss has a stepped quality. While this example is more of a hybrid of a queen post and king post truss, the metal tie rod visually disappears, giving the truss a hammerbeam appearance.
