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 and our truss designs are engineered for a standard 60 psf snow load, 115 mph wind load, seismic category D and exposure C to meet or exceed the latest 2012 IRC/IBC specs.
