Custom Trusses Could be That One-of-a-Kind Feature Homeowners Are Searching for

custom scribed log trussesToday’s custom homeowners are looking for that one thing that sets their home apart. Exposed trusses, particularly in log and timber frame homes, can add that special wow factor. Trusses are commonly used in interior and exterior entryways for a dramatic effect. They can also be used in great rooms to complement high-vaulted ceilings and be added to a master bedroom to make an ordinary space jaw-dropping.

While trusses add spectacular visual appeal, they actually serve as a home’s primary support system, supporting the roof and helping to distribute weight on load-bearing walls. In conventional homes, trusses are typically hidden within the ceilings. Yet many log and cabin homeowners prefer exposed trusses as a way to showcase the natural wood beauty, the architectural design of a home, and create a rustic look and feel.

There are many different truss styles to choose from that can be used to reflect the style and design preferences of your clients. From elegant scissor trusses and classic king post trusses to soaring hammerbeam trusses, the design options are pretty endless. Choose decorative truss connectors to bring attention to the truss construction, or stick with a classic look where the connections are hidden and the focus remains on the beauty of the wood. Curved brackets in a king post truss, alternating stain colors, and sandblasting are all ways to create a unique aesthetic for your customers.You can further customize the design by choosing erough-sawn, hand adzed or smooth timber or logs.
