Frame construction is a building technique that involves constructing a supportive framework of rafters, joists, studs and then attach everything else the this framework. The process of frame construction start with building up a sill on the ground, with the sill being attached to a foundation. Long studs are attached to the sill at specific intervals to create a network which can be attached to the joists and rafters, which make up the roof of any additional sotries. The frame may be additionally supported with cross bracing and other techniques. Essentially, frame construction creates a skeleton of the home, structure of the room being remodeled. Depending on the size of the structure this may only take a few days to complete.
Once the frame is complete, walls and other features can be added. The structure grows progressively more stable as stiff flooring and walls are added, creating additional support and resistancec to the elements. Within the structure, the builders can differentiate from critical structural walls, which provide support to keep the building safe and partitions which can be used to divide and change the shape of various spaces within the structure for utility.
