Glenquary Trusses

Our clients for this project were referred to us by one of our suppliers, Coach House Timbers. They were in the midst of designing a large residential project in the Southern Highlands and were looking for an internal architectural feature that could match the grand scale of this new home.
The brief from architects and engineers on this project was to create a set of huge Spotted Gum feature trusses to span the ‘Great Room’ of this stately residence. The individual Spotted Gum timbers supplied by Coach House Timbers were 250mm x 250mm, considerably larger than we would typically use on a truss this size.
The extra-large dimension, heavy timber framing used in these trusses were a critical piece in the design aesthetic of this build. Due to the size and scale of the home, and specifically the Great Room, smaller timbers would have been out of proportion in this impressive space.
Our team handcrafted these large-scale trusses in our workshop, using only traditional joinery techniques. Once completed, the trusses were trucked to the building site and carefully craned into place atop the masonry walls that make up the bulk of the building.
