The above image shows the new pre-formed structural trusses that make up the new roof.
The new roof conversion enhanced the property to create five double bedrooms and four ensuite bathrooms.
Pre-formed trusses replace the rafters and ceiling joists used in aa conventional roof. The use of trusses enables the construction or conversion of homes with more complex roof and ceiling designs, and with greater speed and accuracy. Pre-formed trusses are also able to span longer distances and eliminate the need for inside load bearing walls.
Trusses can be designed for nearly any ceiling or roof combination required, and are designed by engineers to meet the roof load and building code requirements. Trusses can usually be erected in one day, thereby reducing the amount of time the interior of the home may be exposed to adverse weather.
