At Universal Framing Carpentry, we offer homeowners and custom homebuyers all the necessary tools and knowledge essential to make the custom house framing building process easy and enjoyable!
Custom house framing consists of several separate projects assembled into one to create the finished house. Taking that context into consideration, home or building framing is not all that difficult. Using today’s advances in air tools, including framing nailers, one doesn’t even have to be an experienced hammer swinger to frame a house. Nonetheless, it is a good idea for the inexperienced to begin with a small, simple construction rather than a two-story, intricate design. In most instances, one will be constructing from building plans, and that’s definitely the easiest for the inexperienced.
The most common custom house framing material is wood, but metal framing has been becoming more popular.
This construction stage is exhilarating for the house owners since the house starts to form and resemble the final product.
Understanding Custom House Framing
Immediately after the foundations are set, custom house framing starts. The frame serves as the bone-structure of one’s house. It is as critical as its foundation.
The process of custom house framing will commence with the subfloor, then the client’s exterior and structurally fundamental interior walls will be checked out and built on site. Should there be a second floor, then the second floor’s subfloor will be installed, and the process will repeat. Once the second-floor walls are framed, or if one decides to build a bungalow, the next step is to crane the pre-fabricated structure for your roof called trusses. It will be craned into place and installed in a very similar manner to the joints. Finally, the house framers will sheet the roof. At this point, one’s house has taken shape and is in near-completion.
The Importance of Proper Custom House Framing
The custom house framing process is one of the most vital parts of any home construction project. If your house’s frame is not properly assembled, the floors will squeak when they’re finished, the drywall won’t be able to lie flat, and the home’s doors won’t close as they should. At Universal Framing Carpentry, we ensure only the best quality framing while taking utmost care.
