Summary

Framing is bread-and-butter work for builders. Builders who want to stay on top of their business and meet customer demands for quality materials and excellent workmanship need to know about engineered lumber-how it affects home design, and how different types of engineered lumber are ordered, stored, handled, cut and installed. "Building with Engineered Lumber" delivers this information clearly, comprehensively, and in well-organized chapters that builders can put to work right away.
