Publisher Comments:

Ultimate Guide to House Framing, 3rd Edition, leads homeowners through the steps of building a structure by means of platform framing, the most popular style of framing in use today. The book also covers the latest in eco-friendly materials as well as green framing techniques. Ultimate Guide to House Framing is the most up-to-date source for framing information. Beginning with background information, the book provides readers with everything they need to know about building, including structural loads and how they interact, sizing lumber, working with tools, and reading blueprints. The book then takes the reader through the framing process-from foundations to floor framing, wall framing, roof framing, sheathing, and more. This expanded and revised edition ends with three project chapters: building stairs, finishing a basement with steel studs, and framing a bay window. Each chapter covers both construction and design information.
