Wonderland Trusses

King Post Trusses

Open truss roofs can make a small room feel more spacious and offers greater flexibility to install various forms of lighting.

The King Post truss using either solid or laminated timber is a cost effective truss which provides a sharp focal point to any room. They can also be made with curved webs and chords.

Structurally the bottom chord acts as a tie beam for the room, restraining the outward thrust where roof meets the ceiling and walls.  The truss keeps the walls from spreading due to roof loads.
