Here's your chance to become a more efficient carpenter. Larry Haun has been a production framer for more than 35 years and a teacher of apprentices for more than 20. In this book, Haun shows you, step by step, all the techniques he uses to frame a basic house, from laying down the sills to cutting the rafters. You'll learn about:

  • cutting and installing posts and girders
  • joisting and sheathing fluently
  • laying out, cutting, assembling, and raising walls
  • framing gable roofs, hips and valleys, and truss roofs
  • building various types of stairs

There is an opening chapter on tools, plans, codes, permits, lumber, and materials, and additional information throughout the book on safety and site-built tools. The Very Efficient Carpenter is no less than a complete course in basic framing.
