Engineered trusses are designed to transfer any lateral forces directly downward onto the side walls. This eliminates the need for upstairs post and beam supports. Because of this design, any interior walls you may wish to incorporate are non-load bearing, leaving you the freedom to create any floor plan you wish. This design also maximizes useable second floor space.
All of our plans are drafted in AutoCAD to the latest 2009 IRC/IBC specs and our truss designs are engineered for a standard 60 psf snow load, 90 mph wind load, seismic category D and exposure C according to the 2007 CBC.
