Framing - Carpentry And Home Building

The word framing could provide us with a variety of different meanings, but we're only going to focus on one. It's the assembly process used to construct a buildings floors, walls, ceilings, roof and stairway, using metal and construction grade lumber. Framing also includes the placement of structural components like posts, beams and engineered roof systems.

For example, if I referred to framing a house , this would include building the shell of the entire home. Other construction workers would be used to install the plumbing, electrical, heating, air conditioning, windows, doors, roofing, siding, wallboards, plaster, flooring and painting.

In the picture above, the floor and walls have been framed and the next phase of the construction framing, will be assembling the roof.
