One superb way to add drama to your home is by including sling brace trusses in the design of the timber frame, and they are regarded as being one of the most impressive and eye-catching types of cross frame. So what is a sling brace truss?
Sling brace trusses are perfect for those wanting to incorporate an oak frame into the living area. One wonderful example is that of Foxleigh Grove. You can see how the long curves sweep across ceiling and arch together for a kind of vaulted effect, rather than hugging tight to the wall. Sling brace trusses are used in two storey buildings with low eaves and are usually combined with dormer windows.
Many homeowners fall for them because of the incredible sensation it offers of truly living within an oak frame. With Foxleigh Grove, generous areas of glazing and windows throw light across the frames, increasing the drama.
