Conventional Framing - Home Construction
Conventional framing is any method used to frame a house using regular lumber. As a matter of fact, the only time I've ever heard anyone refer to a specific building process, using the word conventional, related to building a roof.
A conventional framed roof uses individual roof
rafters, valleys, hips and ridges. The roof cutter would figure out all
of the correct measurements for the roof building components and then
cut each one of them individually.
After the entire roof has been cut a construction worker or a group of construction workers will assemble the conventionally framed roof.
Engineered roof systems that use roof trusses, might not be considered a conventional roof, especially by the people I used to work with. Things could change today, but that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
The only difference between conventional framing and other framing methods, would involve preassembled, man-made, structurally engineered building components, like roof trusses.
