Course Summary: Wood frame construction is the predominant method of building homes and apartments in the United States, enabling this nation to have the world’s best house population. Increasingly, wood framing is also being used in commercial and industrial buildings.

Wood frame buildings are economical to build, heat, cool and provide maximum comfort to occupants.- To design brackets on fabricated frame scaf-folds used to support cantilevered loads in addition to workers. (c)(5) - To design outrigger scaffolds and scaffold components.

(i)(8) What other standards apply to scaffolds? 29 CFR contains other standards that apply to construction work such as the responsibility to initiate.Framing, in construction, is the fitting together of pieces to give a structure support and shape.

Framing materials are usually wood, engineered wood, or structural alternative to framed construction is generally called mass wall construction, where horizontal layers of stacked materials such as log building, masonry, rammed earth, adobe, etc.

are used without framing.
