A large amount of framing can be done by eye­ balling. Carpenters need to train their eyes to do a lot of their measuring and marking for them and to learn to trust their judgments, which will improve with practice. Having to pull out a tape or square for every little measurement and cut is time-consuming and often unnecessary. An efficient carpenter needs to learn how to cut lumber without always measuring and marking. When cutting sills, let the foundation edge be your guide for length. For a square cut, keep the edge of the saw table parallel with the edge of the lumber.

Note that the ridge stock must be 2 in. wider than the rafter stock (2x8 rafters need a 2xlO ridge). Order ridge stock long, 20 ft. at least, to make it eas­ ier to stack (build) the roof. Sometimes when rafters are overspanned (too small to carry the roof load), they need to be sup­ ported in the center by a purlin. Again, check the plans for size, measure the lineal feet needed and order long lengths (such as 18 ft. ). Often builders will not order extra material for purlins, planning to use up any stock left over from joists or rafters.

They come in various depths and have knockouts in the web through which elec­ trical conduit or water pipes can be run. , making it possible to create very large rooms. Another advantage is that they are always straight, which means that the floors will be flat and level. Regular joists shrink faster than beams and can cause a floor to develop humps and squeaks. A disadvantage of using wooden I-beam joists is that joist layout has to be done with more care. It is necessary to know the exact location of plumbing and heating runs, stairwells, and so on.
