Building new Backbones for Beautiful Houses
Framing houses is about assembling a new superstructure in either wood, engineered wood, or structural steel. Eastview Homes has lots of experience with light frame construction which happens immediately after securing a home's foundation. Structural framing is just as important as preparing a good foundation. Professionally framed structures have seamless drywall, level floors and stairs that don't creak. Well-framed walls directly affect kitchen cabinets, bathroom vanities and windows. Depending on the size and complexity of your home, structural framing can take anywhere from a couple weeks to a month to complete.
Eastview Homes frames custom homes, home additions, and covered porches. We're skilled at making changes to awkward roofs and dormers. We've lots of practice removing load bearing walls by adding structural beams and columns; such space reclamation is often core to remodeling projects. The beams can be hidden in the ceiling, moulded or left exposed.
Eastview Homes frames houses from basement to attic, and we work from the outside - in. That means we start on the outside of the dwelling and work our way towards the center of the home. First we lay down the sub floor and then we raise the exterior walls, which are typically 2 x 6 wood studs. Then we turn out attention toward the interior partition walls where we use smaller dimension studs depending on the mechanical or plumbing needs of the room. After we complete the interior walls and stairs we crane the roof trusses into place above. If we're building a second-floor addition, then the second-floor sub floor will be installed, and the process will be repeated. The final hours of structural framing are spent sheeting the roof with plywood, preparing it for the roofers.
