Framing a House

Roe Osborn


House framing can be an intimidating challenge. Thousands of pieces of wood must be cut to precise dimensions, according to a set of plans. Accurate and safe assembly is critical as the house must support the weight of building materials, equipment, appliances and people – there's simply no room for error.

This comprehensive, accessible and highly visual book walks readers through this complicated process with ease. It's all here – from using the right tools and framing a first-floor deck to building stairs, roofs and dormers and installing exterior trim.

The author doesn't leave out the hard parts; he simply makes them understandable.
