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. And yet, 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. Former Fine Homebuilding editor and builder Roe Osborn doesn't leave out the hard parts; he simply makes them understandable.
