Title:Wood-Frame Construction—Do It Right!
Author(s):Sherwood, Gerald E.; Percival, Donald H.
Contributor(s):Milner, Donna (illustrator); Spies, Henry R. (editor)
Subject(s):Buildings
Construction
Abstract:Information is available on how to buildwood-frame houses that will last many years with a minimum of maintenance and repair. Unfortunately, much of this informaiton is not used, so errors frequently occur. Field observations by the staff of the Forest Products Laboratory of the U.S. Department of Agriculture and of the Small Homes Council-Building Research Council of the University of Illinois have shown that certain problems occur frequently. This publication shows examples of common errors and explains acceptable principles and practices aimed at reducing future occurrences. It should be of use to building designers, builders, and homeowners.
