Framing the House

The concrete slab was poured on a Saturday and framing the house started the next Monday. Winsome Construction uses advanced stick framing as a means to improve the energy performance of the house. Advanced stick framing includes the use of staggered studs. The studs do not touch both the outside and inside of the exterior wall preventing a thermal bridge and the loss of heat. The increased space in the wall cavity allows for more insulation which further increases the energy efficiency of the house. After the studs are in place plywood sheets are nailed to the framed walls. Check out the Framing Gallery for pictures.
