BOB SCHMIDT SHOWS YOU HOW TO ACCURATELY FRAME FOR AN INTERIOR DOOR SHOWING YOU HOW TO MEASURE A DOOR AND ALLOW FOR PROPER CLEARANCE WHILE FRAMING ALSO HOW TO DEAL WITH AN UNLEVEL FLOOR.probably the single most important part of your framing is your door framing 00:08 proper door framing as far as installing the door go much easier 00:12 I will show you how to do that, Lets get to work. 00:20 now before you can frame for a door you have to understand door sizes, 00:24 this door in particular that we are going to be installing today is a 00:27 two six door. 00:29 does not mean twenty six inches it means 2ft 6 inches and that is a 30 inch door 00:34 in 00:34 you always frame two inches wider 00:38 than 00:38 the size of the door to allow for this door jamb material 00:42 and to allow for shims for setting the door 00:45 same holds true on the height a standard door is 6ft 8 in 00:49 you always frames six foot ten 00:52 along side of your opening for the door 00:54 you're always going to have two studs 00:57 the stud here that is 1 1/2 inch away from the opening 01:00 we call it the king stud 01:02 and it runs from the base plate 01:04 all the way up 01:07 to the bottom of your top plate 01:08 at the top 01:10 now this stud here 01:11 will call it the crippling comes even with your opening and this is what you 01:15 you are going to attach your door to 01:17 and it runs from the bottom plate all the way up to the bottom of your header 01:20 which is the top framing for the opening 01:23 now there's a reason why you always have two studs alongside a door opening 01:27 its because 01:28 A) It has more strength for holding the weight of the door 01:32 B) 01:33 if you nail these two studs together nice and flat on the face 01:37 It will also help keep them from twisting or bowing 01:40 and third reason is 01:42 is when you had your box, when you put your door trim on here 01:45 It will hold your electrical box far enough away that a standard casing will fit. 01:50 if you're using a wider than standard casing 01:53 you can always add a block to install your box on to 01:57 give you enough spacing for your trim. The single most important thing you can do when 02:01 you're framing for your door 02:04 is make sure that this is plumb 02:06 hold the 4ft level about the center the opening 02:09 put it against the two side studs 02:11 and make sure that the bubble is as close to the dead center between those lines as you can 02:15 get 02:16 there's only a limited amount of space that you are going to have here 02:20 to shim in behind the door if you have this leaning too far one way or the 02:23 other 02:24 the door will not fit properly 02:26 once you're sure that your two sides are plumb 02:29 you also have to make sure that your header is level 02:32 now sometimes when you're building on a basement floor and the floor is running downhill 02:38 one-side of your jamb may be kicked up higher than the other 02:41 and make sure that you make any adjustments that you have to do to make 02:44 this level prior to hanging drywall. So there you go 02:49 you got your width right you got your height right you have your two side pieces 02:52 that are nice and flush with each other that you nailed together strongly 02:56 you got a level top of plumb sides You are ready to get some drywall on this frame 03:01 and this opening will be ready for a door. One more thing i realized after watching 03:04 this video that we maybe you need to know 03:06 this framing that we did for this wall 03:08 is for not bearing wall, in other words 03:12 you're going to have weight above here a roof load or floor load you'd have to 03:16 consult an engineer to find out what size header you will need 03:21 prior 03:22 to building the wall 03:25 yea that that was pretty it, Owww 03:27 I forgot wait a second! 03:29 in case you like this video we have some other stuff coming out you'll be 03:32 the first one to see it if you just hit the Subscribe button its over here some where.

US Navy training film MN-5715b Originally a public domain film from the US National Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied. The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Framing_(construction) Wikipedia license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ ...Walls Wall framing in house construction includes the vertical and horizontal members of exterior walls and interior partitions, both of bearing walls and non-bearing walls. These stick members, referred to as studs, wall plates and lintels (headers), serve as a nailing base for all covering material and support the upper floor platforms, which provide the lateral strength along a wall. The platforms may be the boxed structure of a ceiling and roof, or the ceiling and floor joists of the story above. The technique is variously referred to colloquially in the building trades as stick and frame, stick and platform, or stick and box as the sticks (studs) give the structure its vertical support, and the box shaped floor sections with joists contained within length-long post and lintels (more commonly called headers), supports the weight of whatever is above, including the next wall up and the roof above the top story. The platform also provides the lateral support against wind and holds the stick walls true and square. Any lower platform supports the weight of the platforms and walls above the level of its component headers and joists. Framing lumber should be grade-stamped, and have a moisture content not exceeding 19%. There are three historically common methods of framing a house. - Post and Beam, which is now used predominately in barn construction. - Balloon framing using a technique suspending floors from the walls was common until the late 1940s, but since that time, platform framing has become the predominant form of house construction. - Platform framing often forms wall sections horizontally on the sub-floor prior to erection, easing positioning of studs and increasing accuracy while cutting the necessary manpower. The top and bottom plates are end-nailed to each stud with two nails at least 3.25 in (83 mm) in length (16d or 16 penny nails). Studs are at least doubled (creating posts) at openings, the jack stud being cut to receive the lintels(headers) that are placed and end-nailed through the outer studs. Wall sheathing, usually a plywood or other laminate, is usually applied to the framing prior to erection, thus eliminating the need to scaffold, and again increasing speed and cutting manpower needs and expenses. Some types of exterior sheathing, such as asphalt-impregnated fibreboard, plywood, oriented strand board and waferboard, will provide adequate bracing to resist lateral loads and keep the wall square. (Construction codes in most jurisdictions require a stiff plywood sheathing.) Others, such as rigid glass-fibre, asphalt-coated fibreboard, polystyrene or polyurethane board, will not. In this latter case, the wall should be reinforced with a diagonal wood or metal bracing inset into the studs... Corners A multiple-stud post made up of at least three studs, or the equivalent, is generally used at exterior corners and intersections to secure a good tie between adjoining walls and to provide nailing support for the interior finish and exterior sheathing. Corners and intersections, however, must be framed with at least two studs. Nailing support for the edges of the ceiling is required at the junction of the wall and ceiling where partitions run parallel to the ceiling joists. This material is commonly referred to as 'dead wood' or backing. Exterior wall studs Wall framing in house construction includes the vertical and horizontal members of exterior walls and interior partitions. These members, referred to as studs, wall plates and lintels, serve as a nailing base for all covering material and support the upper floors, ceiling and roof. Exterior wall studs are the vertical members to which the wall sheathing and cladding are attached. They are supported on a bottom plate or foundation sill and in turn support the top plate. Studs usually consist of 2 × 4 in (51 × 100 mm) or 2 × 6 in (51 × 150 mm) lumber and are commonly spaced at 16 in (410 mm) on centre...

How to Tell if Your Wall is Load Bearing, How To Cut a Doorway in a Load Bearing Wall
Be sure to view our other video on How To Eliminate Wobble in a kitchen wall: https://youtu.be/KWIHdWjPKC0 Tools we recommend: Dewalt Framing Nailer Kit: https://amzn.to/2BIespt It's a 20-Volt MAX XR Lithium-Ion battery cordless brushless 2-speed 33-degree framing nailer. This comes with charger and case too. I got this as a great alternative to having a compressor and twisted hoses everywhere to power a framing nailer to nail the bottom plate and wall studs back together, and add cabinet blocking to our stud walls. Here we show you DIY friends how to tell if a wall is load bearing, and we explain the physics and engineering behind load bearing walls, and break down each of the components of a stud wall for you in this bearing wall design example, like jack studs and kind studs, both important parts of your load bearing wall framing. Keep in mind this house was built in 1946 on the cheap for veterans, and so the header over this door frame resting on the jack studs was not correct. Today's building codes for bearing wall framing would have the header as a two 2x6 boards, with a half inch plywood sandwiched in between and they would be mounted with the 6" side upward vertically, not laying down flat on the jack studs as the door frame on this load bearing wall shows. If you are about to take down your wall in the kitchen to open up the kitchen to the living room, you need to know if that is a • bearing wall structure because you can't just demolish that wall, there are certain bracing precautions you must use prior to load bearing wall removal. So at this point, you really have to study and learn how to know if a wall is load bearing. A load bearing wall is a wall that directly bears the point load weight of the roof trusses or a second floor above it. If it is a true load bearing wall, then usually the floor joists of the attic above your wall will sit with one end of the joist on the top of your stud wall, and so people remodeling a house need to determine if the wall is load bearing or not. If you see a floor joist end on top of your stud wall, then it is a load bearing wall, and you know you can't just remove load bearing wall until you put the new framing in. The strict definition of the load bearing wall is if the ends of a roof truss or floor joists sit on top of your stud wall, then you know there is a point load going down to ground. But what if the joists are just traveling across the top of your stud wall, and the joists are supported on both ends of the house, is your wall still load bearing? In this potential bearing wall design example, opinions vary. It's a tough question, not everyone is a structural engineering expert. I witnessed 2 contractors debating over whether this was a load bearing wall. Some people say yes these are load bearing walls, and some say no. But you cant go wrong in treating it as a load bearing wall, and just make sure you don't take the whole wall down at once. to be safe for load bearing wall removal, you can always build a temporary stud wall to brace the ceiling joists until you replace the bearing wall with a beam and its supports. But if it is a load bearing wall, you need to build bracing to support the floor joists or other loads above prior to removing any studs from this wall. Also the header over the door should be made of two 2x6 pieces of wood nailed together and mounted so the 6" tall part should be the header over the door top. You may need a 1/2" thick filler piece nailed between them. This is what I think is the funny part, you have to build a bearing wall framing structure in order to take down a load bearing framing structure. Load bearing wall removal If the wall is load bearing, then you cannot just start pulling studs out of it to open up your kitchen for that open concept look because then the load, which is your roof or second floor, could come crashing down. You need to build a temporary stud wall and mount it pretty close to your load bearing wall to support the ceiling structure above it before you can remove that load bearing wall. At the risk of sounding repetitive, do not remove any load bearing walls unless you have some type of shoring or temporary bearing wall framing installed. You have to install a load bearing wall to remove a load bearing wall. Sounds counter-intuitive, but think of this temporary bearing wall as a stunt double for the original. Based on the information in this video, you'll be able to quickly determine whether your wall is load bearing or not, and see the necessary anatomy of what a properly framed door cut out should look like to create a cutout for a door in a load bearing wall. Once you decide to cut out a door frame into the wall, this video also shows you the anatomy of the stud wall framing, and discusses the wall framing, the header board, the jack stud, and the king stud, all components in involved in framing a door into the middle of stud wall framing.

Using an Electric Hand Plane - Beginners #24
** Read Full Article Here - http://goo.gl/tnAMJz Electric hand planes are great little tools, in this video we show how to use them ** Like me at Facebook: https://goo.gl/DLgvoa ** Connect with me on Google+: http://goo.gl/7fotJq ** Follow me on Twitter: https://twitter.com/woodworkweb **** Subscribe here - https://www.youtube.com/user/knecht105 Hand planes have been used forever in woodworking, only in recent years have electric versions come available. We see these used more often in carpentry and house construction and even are very popular in home renovation for their quick work on warped wood. Fine woodworkers use these on occasion but they are not a substitute for a jointer or a thickness planer. Beginner woodworkers may think an electric hand plane is a good way to get boards flat and straight without having to invest in a jointer, unfortunately they are not. Owing to their short length these tend to follow the contour of the wood, which is why jointers are so long, to help flatten out the wood. Still, these little woodworking tools have a place but for fine woodworking sometimes a better choice might be a Veritas Plane from Lee Valley or Lie-Nielsen Plane if fine work is what you are trying to achieve.

How to Build Joists - Manhattan Brownstone Remodel - Bob Vila eps.2902
Related: When Remodeling Uncovers Hidden Treasures: http://www.bobvila.com/articles/449-when-remodeling-uncovers-hidden-treasures/pages/1 The big story is the cornice molding found intact when the drop ceiling came down. The molding will set a tone for the main living space, where the bricks have been removed to install a flue liner and drafting fireplace. All of the 40s wall, surface, and ceiling treatments are gone, along with the lath and plaster, leaving the bare brick and exposed joists from the original construction. Remodels have cut into the joist work or damaged it, so some reworking will be necessary to build up for the floors and ceilings. The floor joists are sistered to make a level, solid footing for the Georgia-Pacific Plytanium subflooring that goes under the wood floor. Laser levels allow the carpenters to set level lines throughout the apartment horizontally for the floor and vertically for the new steel studs they are installing. Finally, a flexible flue liner is run through the wall, and up the chimney for the new fireplace.
