      Hammer beam truss
      that specific pic has cross bracing added at the top and is very ornate

      there's all kinds of trusses with different styles and strengths
      the old school ones without xbox-huge metal plate connectors look way better even though they're weaker

      More expensive, since you can't grab the typical Home Depot handymen (meth heads and Mexicans who brought exactly zero skills when immigrating) for it, you need actually trained labor.
      Material costs come out slightly higher, since the timbers used are a fair bit more expensive, but that's offest by needing fewer of them. Should also be noted that even though it may be useful for holding up your roof, you're likely to still have some stick built walls since all your utilities will need somewhere to be mounted.

    ICF is actually the best. Or for cheaper a 2x6 stick frame. My friend had a timber house. The timber will randomly crack as it acclimates or whatever and it sounds like a gunshot. Makes sleeping over there terrible.
