One of our first green oak frames, La Mare Vineyard is an unusual cross shaped truss with two timber trusses crossing in the same plane, spanning between opposite corners of a square, with a common central king post.
The corners of the frame are braced with dragon ties resisting an outward thrust from the inclined bottom chords. Tie forces are balanced around the perimeter of the frame with hidden stainless steel straps locally tieing the timber at joints.
