Scissor Truss Design

Adding height over the king post, it’s a wonderful option for your great room.

Steel rods as bottom chords lighten up the design.  These 2 truss designs are being considered for a pool  house, and though I love the complete timber truss, I can appreciate the lighter look of the steel.

What are your thoughts?

    I like the steel but maybe that is just the engineer in me.
