1880 framing

1880 framing

(OP)
Hello, looking for drawing details on 1800's framing.
Have 4 story building in need of repairs.
Large timber frame roof trusses support floors below (attic, 3rd, 2nd floors).
Tension rods extend from attic framing down to beams supporting the floor joists.
Before we perform selective demolition to inspect, would like to review any similar framing details.
Thank you.

Lumber sizes may be full size or larger, and careful for conditions of brown rot (aka dryrot).

Assume the rods are wrought iron, not steel. See this link for guidance on yield strength of historic wrought iron members.
