The updated, easy-to-use reference for rough carpentry and framing

Complete Book of Framing, Second Edition is an updated, easy-to-use guide to rough carpentry and framing written by an expert with more than thirty years of framing experience. This book guides the reader through each step of framing floors, walls, roofs, door and window openings, and stairs. Hundreds of color photographs and illustrations help the reader understand basic and advanced framing methods. This Second Edition is updated to match the framing techniques of the 2009 International Building Code and introduces the concept of "green framing" with regard to material use and handling. Other new content includes:

  • Instructions on dealing with the new corrosive-causing methods that began to be used in 2004 for pressure-treated wood

  • Coverage of the time- and energy-saving benefits of positive placement nail guns—the industry standard for fastening light gauge hardware

  • A chart displaying glue-laminated beam weight, used for organizing the installation of glue-laminated beams

Starting with the basics, this book begins with types of lumber, nails, and what tools are needed, followed by detailed, fully illustrated steps for framing each building element—from planning and layout through specific nailing patterns. Framer-friendly tips throughout the book show how to get a task done right—and more easily.
