The room-in-roof truss, or attic truss, is a simple means of providing the structural roof, floor and internal walls in the same component. Attic roof trusses are designed to form the top storey of a dwelling with habitable room spaces; such as additional bedrooms, a self-contained annex or an office space, by leaving it free of internal web members.
With land prices increasing, attic rooms are becoming increasingly popular. The room-in-the-roof concept is more than an attic conversion. Through intelligent roof truss design, ETS can increase the amount of usable room in a building void by up to 70% without increasing the footprint or roof height, turning previously unusable roof voids into added-value living space.
As well as straightforward room-in-the-roof projects, ETS is highly experienced in designing the most intricate roof layouts to achieve optimum space, taking into consideration staircases, dormers and roof windows.
