Here is an area where we found amazing differences in cost. What's up with these guys? We got into the sawdusted craniums of some of the sharpies in the field and one of the best framers on the planet. Eight pages, revised and updated with new reader tips, web links and comments.

Topics Include:

  • What constitutes quality framing?
  • Availability of framers
  • Panelized and SIP framing alternatives
  • Alternate technology framers
  • Post and beam/timberframe homes
  • Framing for ICF homes
  • Floor trusses vs. I-joists
  • Steel framing, price escalation
  • Roof trusses

Excerpt from Report:

"...Q: What do you suggest for a good job?

A: Window headers - no gaps, tight corners, tight fitting studs, missing nails.

A: All the materials there. Experience and attitude.

A: Framer has to be good. Call the bldg. depts. and ask what quality of work. How clean. Over cut, not tight, not square. Leaning.

A: Good crew. We like to order our own lumber, to get you the right stuff. Square, plumb. Fasteners in the right place, according to code.

Q: What do you do that is better than other subs?

A: Nitpicky. Like a finish carpenter. 1/4 inch is not good enough.

A: I can get a crew.

A: We have some good people.

A: We have more quality control, watch our men a little more. We?ve been at it long time. My crews work together alot. My partner runs one crew, a general runs another one. We've all been together for six years."...

Sample Reader Tip Excerpts:

"We are using high profile attic trusses. We will use attic space for bedrooms with dormers. This truss gives us essentially a free bedroom space in the attic, 16 feet wide by the length of the house. And we put them over the garage, giving us a huge playroom. A 10/12 pitch roof results, which is very steep, so we are considering metal roofing."

"My husband doesn't want a steep roof. As a carpenter, he found that the trusses were much more expensive. Flat roof southwest style."
John & Cyndee M.
