Standard Timber Truss Styles

Our standard heavy timber roof trusses include the King Post, Hammerbeam, Scissor and Queen Post timber truss. However, for many projects we design and fabricate custom trusses to fit individual structural and aesthetic needs.

King Post Timber Truss

King Post Timber Truss

King Post Roof Trusses are the most cost effective truss, and they look great when curved braces and webs are used. The King Post Timber Truss handles long spans and heavy load conditions. This truss, used in conjunction with heavy timber attic or collar tie trusses, works well in a loft area, a great room or for an entryway. Modified King Post Trusses are are especially good for when more visual height is desired in the building plan.

queen post timber truss

Queen Post Timber Truss

Queen Post Roof Trusses are very similar in design to king post trusses except that the interior of the truss has two vertical "queen posts" instead of one central "king post" They look great and offer an open area in the middle of the truss.

Hammer Beam Heavy Timber Truss

Hammer Beam Timber Truss

The Hammer Beam Heavy Timber Truss is best for distributing the roof load. It includes posts which extend to the first floor system. A hammerbeam heavy timber truss is often used where wide, clear spans are required and where structural members would obstruct the view. Modified Hammer Beam Trusses have a great look with their open design and arched webs and braces.


custom timber trusses

Custom Timber Truss

High Country Timberframe will custom design wooden trusses for large or small projects. If you have the design, provide us with the specifications and we will custom manufacture to your needs. If you need design services, you can work with our design team to decide upon the best design based on structural and aesthetic needs as well as costs and time.

scissor timber truss

Scissor Truss

The scissor truss gets its name from being shaped like a pair of shears (scissors). A Scissor Truss can elevate part of the bottom of a truss structure as two inside beams rise to meet one another in the middle of the truss. This adds space for a peaked or "vaulted" interior ceiling. The Scissor Timber Truss really blends well with all styles western, contemporary, Old European and even a cottage style if the roof pitch is low.

Options & Choices

Wood Species

We have fabricated timber trusses for both residential and commercial projects from Douglas Fir, Western Red Cedar, Port Orford Cedar, Alaskan Yellow Cedar, Oak, Cypress and Reclaimed Timbers. Dependent upon the scope and structural requirements of the project we may recommend a specific species based upon engineering requirements.

Finishing Options

If no special finish is specified, your wood trusses and beams will be delivered "S4S", (smooth surfaces on all timber faces) which is the standard appearance for most timber trusses and beams. You have multiple finishing options including unfinished, hand hewn, planed, distressed, chamfered or rounded edges, and stained or oiled with your choice of color. We provide clients with samples to view prior to deciding how to finish their timbers.

Fabrication & Installation

Shop drawings are a crucial part of what we do. We begin each project with the creation of a detailed set of shop drawings. We take great care with the process. No cuts happen to timbers without full review of the shop drawings and final sign off from the customer . We pre-assemble each piece in the shop during the crafting and fabrication process to ensure a good fit on the jobsite. While some components will arrive to your jobsite assembled, many are too large and will be disassembled and bundled for shipping. They will arrive at you job site where you or your general contractor will perform the installation. All hardware necessary for installation is included. We also offer on-site timber frame assembly and installation services to expedite the raising of your timber frame components.

Lead Times

Every project is unique and lead time is effected by manufacturing capacity and work scope. Generally speaking, most projects carry an 8-10 week lead time from when we receive your contract and deposit payment. Smaller projects can be done in 4-8 weeks and larger ones can take as long as 12-14 weeks. As lead times are dependent upon manufacturing capacity and could be shorter, when you are ready to build, contact us for more precise information.

Optional Components

We can supply Structural T & Groove Decking - 1x, 2x, 3x or 4x in variety of wood species. SIPS (Structural Insulated Panels) and other optional items. We are advocates for using Structural Insulated Panels as an integrated roof frame/insulation solution over our timber trusses.
