disagree  Kim Metzger: Why "arched"? http://www.grossmann-bau.de/frameset.htm?/Holzleimbau/Refere... http://media.wiley.com/product_data/excerpt/98/04708446/0470... /I'd be happy to agree if you removed the "arch".

  -> I wrote "arch", not "arched", and it can have several different shapes - you would need a drawing to pinpoint the exact type. And "Stabzug" is another word for "Fachwerk" (truss). If there is a tie-rod (very likely) it is not included in the term.

agree  David Moore: "Three-pinned" may be better - we wouldn't want a hinged roof over our heads, would we?

  -> "Pins" (large diameter steel bolts) are not used any more in these structures, and to get technical, a "hinge" is a splice that can transmit axial and shear forces but no (bending) moments.
