His crew is calling it the "Corson truss" — a hybrid member built up out of ripped 2x stock and short pieces of wood I-joist, used to fatten walls for super-insulation. Here, carpenter Luke Small stands on a truss web to test the system's strength. It's plenty rugged, says Corson — but on balance, he's not sure it's practical for the entire wall.

All About Larsen Trusses - GreenBuildingAdvisor

A Larsen truss is a type of wall truss used to build a thick wall — thick enough to provide room for above-average amounts of insulation. It was developed in 1981 by John Larsen, a builder in Edmonton, Alberta. In honor of the 30th anniversary of the Larsen truss, the time has come for a definitive article on the invention.
