Pool House with King and Queen Post Trusses

Pool House with King and Queen Post Trusses

The designer of this large, rural Canterbury house was looking for something unusual to support the roof over an indoor swimming pool.  The technical challenge with indoor swimming pools is the corrosive affect that the chlorine can have on any exposed steelwork.  This makes a structural timber option more desirable and competitive financially.  Five  Queen Post trusses spanning 9.5m each were crafted using traditional mortise and tenon joinery to provide a stunning indoor space.
