Attic or room in the roof trusses are becoming increasingly popular as they offer increased living space without changing the footprint of the house, delivering maximum value to the builder and homeowner.
These cleverly designed trusses include a lower member which provides a floor platform. The benefit of this is to provide more flexibility in roof and lower floor layouts as, depending on span and room size, the attic trusses can span onto external load-bearing walls.
The bottom chord of the truss which becomes the floor joist of the room can be designed and manufactured in a number of ways. Including the incorporation of metal web joists which offer a stronger but lightweight option which has the added benefit of allowing services to be easily installed.
