Is there a supplier for Larsen Trusses in Edmonton, Alberta?

I'm wondering if this is a cheaper alternative to the double 2x4 wall system.

Mick,
As far as I know, no commercial supplier has manufactured Larsen trusses since John Larsen got out of the business over 25 years ago.

Fortunately, it's easy to build your own Larsen trusses.

For more information on Larsen trusses, see All About Larsen Trusses.
