Rough Framing at Lake Markham Orlando

Rough Framing: Structural elements of a building or the process of assembling elements to form a supporting structure where finish appearance is not critical.

If you walk by a construction site and see the building skeleton, it may seem the real construction work has yet to begin. However, the skeleton, or rough frame, is the building’s most important structural component.

Construction specialists worked on the rough framing to turn blueprints into the sturdy internal structure of the building.


Residential rough framing: For most homes, construction framers measure, cut and assemble lumber for the walls and subfloor, adding anchors and other vital structural supports.

A rough framing carpenter also measures and attaches studs around the spaces for doors and windows, and sets joists for the ceiling, then trusses for the roof.

Complicated geometrical calculation is required if the house includes arches or cathedral ceilings.
