Curved Trusses

A luxury rural developer recently gave us a design challenge in the shape of some unusual, curved roof trusses for two of their new build homes.

Apex Director Mat Harbour videoed the production stage of these very complex trusses – see below: “One of the best parts about working with regional and niche housebuilders as well as the national players is that we get involved in some really unusual and innovative builds where our design team can really add value,” he explained. “This project where the curved trusses are to form an internal as well as an external feature is a great example of how the skills and experience Apex offers can allow housebuilders to be more creative in their designs.”

The small bespoke site consists of five new builds, two of which are new build Dutch barns. These will not just have barrel-shaped roofs on the outside, but feature barrel-vaulted ceilings upstairs as an unusual and eye catching feature.

Timber trusses are ideal for a wide range of roof structures and building types including intricate and challenging designs like this one.
