What is the crown in framing?

To make the walls and floors appear flat, we “crown” joists and studs. First, we look along the edge of a piece of framing to see if it is bowed or crooked. Usually, you’ll see a slight bow, which is called the crown. If the joists are installed with crowns facing down, it will make the floor sag.

Where does the crown go on a floor truss?

These are often made at the factory with a crown built into the floor truss, but once the floor is covered and furniture put into the room, the trusses are meant to flatten out to a large degree.
