This illustrated guide provides step-by-step instructions for framing a simple house. Osborn, an editor at Fine Homebuilding magazine, begins with an overview of basic concepts of building construction and some of the skills, tools and techniques required for the project. The work proceeds systematically through a ground up description of the building process starting at the first floor deck and describing the erection of the exterior walls, the second floor, stairs, gable walls and the roof and finally interior walls, and finishing touches such as exterior trim and a porch. Each chapter includes numerous color photographs of details of the building process and sidebars on safety, specialty tools and other topics are provided throughout.
