If you are looking for a double wide or larger sized garage, an attractive option is to opt for the attic truss garage design. While this will not provide you with a full sized second floor, it will give you valuable extra storage space above the main floor. Each attic truss model comes with a permanent staircase for access to the upper levels, making access to the attic area easy and convenient.
So what is the difference between the two types of trusses used in these structures? With an attic truss, two beams are placed diagonally meeting at the top of the roof. For support, a small cross beam is placed in between close to the top, providing stability to the roof while also allowing for open space underneath, which creates attic space.
While this truss method is still extremely sturdy, and still allows us to forego the need to build supports for the roof, it does put size limitations on the structure. However here, customers are typically looking for additional storage space that can be hidden away.
Due to the complexity of these structures, attic truss garages must be built on-site.
Here is some useful information and specifications for the attic truss garages:
