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

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.

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
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

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
