As I mentioned in my previous article ("Mudsill Layout for a Complex Foundation," May/14), I own a residential framing company on Cape Cod that focuses on delivering quality framing in a timely manner. The "timely" part can sometimes be a challenge on a high-end, complex frame, while the "quality" part remains mandatory.
In this article, I'll pick up the same job where we left off and will explain how we went about framing the first-floor deck. I'll share a few of the techniques we've developed over the years to achieve both our time and quality goals.
