Overview


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.

    Another great book by Creative Homeowner Press

    Creative Homeowner Press has many great books on carpentry and building. 'House Framing,' by John Wagner, is one of them. As a carpenter with many years of rough and finish work behind me, I have recommended this book on many occasions to beginning carpenters and intermediate level do-it-yourselfers. As with any good text on carpentry, this text starts off with the number one basic concept: Safety. Your safety. You will have many opportunities to read and learn from this book. It only takes one time to suffer the consequences of not knowing what these safety issues are. Next, this book teaches the different characteristics of wood and lumber identification. This is important information that you need to understand when you're purchasing lumber from your local home-improvement center or lumberyard. It's nice to know what the APA (American Plywood Association) markings mean on the sheets of plywood you purchase. Another great topic of discussion in this book is Engineering. Not all carpentry books cover important issues such as deflection and load paths. You will also learn the difference between dead and live loads. These are important concepts to know and understand. The section on blueprints and blueprint reading was a nice touch in this book. It never hurts to know what all the symbols the architects use are. From this point, the book begins teaching framing from the mud-sills to the roof. Each chapter and subject is covered in plain everyday English that's easy to understand for those beginning their journey into framing a house. This author also includes many tips he calls 'The Pros Know' for different techniques that professional carpenters use everyday on the job. As a final added touch, the book also includes a chapter on how to build a straight-run flight of stairs, and finishing a basement using steel studs. Bottom line: A great bang for the buck!

    By far the BEST book I have found on FRAMING

    I have watched many shows and bought quite a number of books on house building, this one answers all of my questions, even the smallest details.
