Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Framing a structure-whether it's a house, a garage, or some other building-can be an intimidating task unless you have an expert to help you along the way. Consider this book your personal framing expert.

House Framing leads you through the steps of building a structure using platform framing, the most popular method in use today. The book provides you with everything you need to know about building, including structural loads and how they interact, sizing lumber, working with tools, and reading blueprints.

The book then takes you through the framing process, from installing mudsills on the foundation through sheathing. Unlike any other similar book, House Framing uses more than 500 full-color drawings to illustrate each step in the framing routine. Each task is rated for difficulty and is accompanied by a list of the tools you'll need. "The Pros Know" boxes, sprinkled throughout the text, provide work-saving, field-tested tips.

House Framing concludes with three project chapters, one on building stairs, one on finishing a basement with steel studs, and one on framing a bay window.

Synopsis:

Written for those with beginning to intermediate building skills, this book walks readers through the framing basics, from assembling simple partitions to cutting compound angles on dormer rafters. More than 400 full-color illustrations and photos.
