Framing For New Construction

Framing new homes was our bread and butter for the longest time. We’ve decided to post one of the home we took pictures of to show you some of the different stages of framing.

Below is the blank slate we start with. In a few weeks time this blank slate will be a 2-story home in the beautiful city of Brigantine, NJ.

Here’s the first floor walls going up. These are the longest walls. They’ll get set level and tied-in with the shorter walls to form the entire perimeter of the home. Notice the concentration and sweat on our crews face!

Here we are finishing up the second floor. The first floor now has sheathing (aka plywood) and all the walls on the inside were framed as well. The second floor still has some sheathing to be finished, but the interior walls are framed and ready to take on the third floor and roof!
A quick note, this is a shot from the rear of the home.

The third floor is up and the roof is rising as well! Yes, we know how to work with roof trusses and how to frame a conventional roof. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us, we’ve amassed plenty of experience over the years to handle any size project!
Unfortunately, we didn’t take anymore pictures, but sheating was the primary task left after the roof was done.
