Practical Advanced Framing

I’ve been building houses for about 18 years now and I’m astounded how little the housing business has changed in the last 50+ years.  Most new houses today are framed pretty similarly to the way houses were framed in the 50’s.  One notable exception is the introduction of lighter & lighter sheathing products, but that’s a blog post for another day.  Most new homes in Austin TX are framed with 2×4 studs on 16″ centers with 2×10 or 2×12 headers over windows/doors.  In this video I’ll show you how some minor tweaks in your framing techniques can yield substantially higher insulation values in your walls.  I’m officially coining the phrase “Practical Advanced Framing”.  Let me know what you think of the video.
