pitch, like in this example, can still be quite spacious when a scissor truss is used to support the roof.

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
tie rod, higher to open up the space, not unlike the struts in a scissor truss?
