TC TRUSSES TC offers traditional heavy timber mortise and tenon trusses. These trusses can be used for both new construction and re-models. They can also be used on conventionally framed stud-walls or on a timber framed structure. Our stock trusses can be ordered in any span up to 28’ and come in 3 configurations: Scissor, Standard King post and King Post with Struts. For more elaborate configurations, embellishments, additional roof members, or longer spans TC offers our custom truss design and building services. STOCK TRUSSES: SPAN AND SPACING: Trusses can be ordered to span up to 28’. Spacing trusses for conventional framing should be limited to 4’ on center; exceeding this spacing may require engineering in the wall framing and foundation to provide for point loads. ROOF BUILD UP: With the structural truss members exposed, your builder will have to frame over the trusses for insulation and utilities. This roof buildup can be done with Structural Insulated Panels supplied by TC, or built with conventional methods by your general contractor. A typical roof assembly consists of: your TC Trusses, tongue-and-grove ceiling decking, insulation panels, plywood, and finally the roofing material. MATERIALS AND FINISH: Stock trusses are built with #1, Free of Heart Center (FOHC), appearance grade, Douglas Fir timber. Trusses up to 18’ are typically designed with 6x8 timbers, and trusses over 18’ are typically designed with 6x10 timbers. We sand all exposed surfaces with 150g random orbital sander, then apply one coat of natural Watco oil. DELIVERY: For most jobs TC delivers trusses to the job site pre-assembled, and ready for your General Contractor to install. TC can also provide installation upon request. CUSTOM TRUSSES: STYLES: TC provides an almost unlimited vocabulary in truss style and configuration. We will incorporate steel plates hidden inside the timber if needed, although we design with traditional mortise and tenon joinery 405 Horn Avenue Santa Rosa, CA 95407 www.timbercreations.net Fax: 707.585.1645 Tel: 707.584.1829 Page 2 whenever possible. We will make an exception on some decorative metal. But TC does not build with face plates. SPAN AND SPACING: Custom timber trusses can be designed for spans exceeding 48’ and TC provides engineering based on your design criteria. With Custom trusses TC can also incorporate intermediate members such as Ridge beams, Purlins, Common rafters, and compound roofs members such as Hip and Valley rafters. MATERIALS AND FINISH: TC offers a variety of timber options for custom trusses: Western Red Cedar, Redwood, Reclaimed Douglas fir, and Dead- standing Larch are just a few. The beam sizing is typically dictated by engineering, however we often oversize our timbers for aesthetic purposes. With Custom trusses you also have a choices of finishes. TC offers textured timber such as hand hewn and re-sawn. You can also specify a mix of Watco oils to match a particular shade. Please note; TC is not a professional finisher, we apply only one coat of oil in our shop, for truly fine finishes we will ship your timbers to a professional finisher prior to delivery to the site. EMBELLISHMENTS: TC can detail the ends of beams with custom carvings. We can also do custom profiles, draw knife edging and lambs tongues. DELIVERY: For most Custom truss projects, TC organizes and handles the installation. Your trusses may or may not ship pre-assembled depending on site conditions and truss size.
