As a DIY'er I have done both strusses and stick built. As a DIY'er I find trusses much easier, quicker, and to provide a great finished product (even, strong, square, etc.). For a pro framer, I would imagine stick building could be preferable due to thier level of expertise and desire to earn money in labor vs. materials. You can get attic space either way with proper design.
