A type of roof frame
with joists supported by the outer load-bearing
walls, and a central load-bearing wall that acts
as the beams do for the floor joists. The ceiling
joists run horizontally, parallel to the floor; the
ceiling rafters begin on the outer load-bearing
walls, but rise as they come to center peak of the
roof (sloped joist).
