Publisher Comments:


Whether you're framing your first house or your 51st, Precision Framing will help you improve the way you work, with techniques to:
  • Build squeak-free floors
  • Frame straight walls
  • Safely work with roof trusses
  • Plan ahead for subcontractors
  • Create site-built tools for fast and accurate measurements
Step-by-step instructions, 200 color photographs, and more than 40 detailed drawings show how to frame efficiently and accurately, from the mudsill to the roof.

Synopsis:
