What is Framing?
Framing involves constructing the basic structural skeleton for a building. The process begins by connecting a treated board to a foundation or slab of some sorts and ends with the installation of the windows and exterior doors. Framing carpenters get their skills from on the job experience. They are skilled with installing treated mud sills, girders, floor joists, sub-flooring, studs, jacks, headers, wall plates, ceiling joists, tray ceilings, rafters, hips, valleys, and cornice.
They also find themselves in situations when they are asked to fill in for missing contractors such as roofers, concrete professionals, trim carpenters, and pretty much anything else that needs to be done.
