Residential Framing: A Homebuilder's Construction Guide Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Opens the subject to anyone...explores all the standard framing methods for floors, walls, ceilings, and roofs... demystifies some of the more obscure tasks, such as building gable dormers, multiple-pitched roofs, staircase construction, and structural foundations. Theres even a section devoted to post-and-beam construction. The book concludes with a discussion about door and window installation, exterior siding and interior finishing.”—Popular Mechanics.

Synopsis:

Every stage of construction receives careful, clear instructions, whether it's the foundation, walls, floors, windows, doors, or roof. Hundreds of photos, diagrams, and illustrations cover flaming materials and systems, floor framing, wall and partition framing, the ceiling, and the roof. A variety of door and window styles is offered, and so is your choice of exteriors, including solid wood, hardboard, plywood, wood shingles, aluminum steel, vinyl, and masonry. Bonus: special tips on interior trims, stairs, porches and decks. There's even a detailed section on the power tools you'll need, how to set up your on-site shop, and how to be your own full-time safety supervisor.
