Take 4 scissor trusses and call me in the morning.


Oh and you better take some purlins too.

There, there, feel better?


Timber Frame decisions can be stressful.  It’s certainly an investment that absolutely adds warmth to the space.

Totally worth it, in our opinion BUT…

You don’t have to have a full timber frame, sometimes an accent with timber is all that’s needed, or wanted.

We understand.

You want big? You want small? Something in between?

We can do that.

The 4 Scissor Trusses shown above would help create a wonderful great room area, don’t you think?  They can brace on conventionally framed walls and viola!  This truss design visually adds height, which I love.


Bring on the scissors

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?
