"The updated easy-to-learn reference for rough carpentry and framing Complete Book of Framing, Second Edition is an updated, easy-to-learn guide to rough carpentry and framing written by an expert with more than thirty years of framing experience. This book guides the reader through the steps on framing floors, walls, roofs, door and window openings, and stairs. Hundreds of color photographs and illustrations help the reader understand the basics as well as advanced framing methods. This Second Edition is updated to match the framing techniques to the 2009 International Building Code, and introduces the concept of "green framing" regarding material use and handling. Deals with the new corrosive treating methods that began to be used in 2004 for pressure treated wood. Covers the time and energy-saving benefits of positive placement nail guns, which have become the industry standard for fastening light gage hardware. Includes a glue-laminated beam weight chart, along with a description of crane operations for setting these beams. Starting with the basics, this book begins with types of lumber, nails, and what tools are needed, followed by detailed, fully illustrated steps for framing each building element--from planning and layout through specific nailing patterns. Framer-Friendly Tips throughout the book show how to get a task done right--and more easily"-- Provided by publisher.
