Summary

Summary

With this easy-to-understand guide you'll learn how to calculate loads, size joists and beams, and tackle many common structural problems facing residential contractors -- including cantilevered floors, complex roof structures, tall window walls, and seismic and wind bracing. Plus you'll learn field-proven production techniques for advanced wall, floor, and roof framing with both dimensional and engineered lumber. You'll find information on framing with wood I-joists, supporting oversized dormers, unequal-pitched roofs, coffered ceilings and more.
