Queen Post Truss
A simple and elegant design where the principle rafters are each supported by a curved Queen Post. This negates the need for a King-Post and gives more useable space in the roof.
Where possible, curved timbers are used for the Queen Posts, so that we can use the natural strength of the wood along it’s grain.
Two simple Queen-Post Trusses were used to make this new house in Mapua stand out from the rest.
The trusses added about 1% to the overall build cost, but as you can see, they add way more value to the home in terms of aesthetic appeal.
