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.

Do you need a tension tie?

This truss design did.  Pretty, don’t you think?

Since this structural truss design naturally wants to push out against the wall framing (we don’t want that), bring in the steel tie rod.

Engineering Department is happy (that’s what we want)!
