Defining the style of your timber roof system.
The timber roof system plays a large part in defining the style of a timber frame building. The clean simple lines of a common rafter, queen or king post truss are widely used to provide architectural detailing that compliments nearly any style space. More ornate truss styles including hammer beam, cruck, sling brace and scissor trusses have been used for hundreds of years to create structurally dramatic spaces that put the framework front and center. These core truss styles can be modified and combined in any number of ways to create a truly unique and stunning heavy timber framed structure.
