Scissor-Truss

Scissor Truss

A timber frame scissor truss does not have a horizontal chord. This gives the area a more visually open appearance. This cathedral-ceiling look has inclined chords, which supports the rafters and ties the members into place.

Queen-Post-Truss

Queen Post Truss

Similar in design to a King Post Truss, the Queen Post Truss uses two vertical posts instead of a single, central post. The two posts create  a more open appearance that is often preferred by homeowners.

A King Post  Truss is a cost effective design, and is particularly attractive when modified with curved braces and webs. Structurally, its bottom chord ties the room together by preventing the walls from spreading.
