Framing specially light-frame construction either platform or light-steel framing, is the fitting together of pieces to give a structure support and shape.
The most common method of light-frame construction for houses and small apartment buildings as well as small commercial buildings is platform framing.
In platform framing a floor box of joists is built and placed on sill plates, cripple walls or beams where it sits flat. Once the boxed floor platform is squared, leveled and fastened, the subfloor, the walls, the ceilings, and the roof are built onto and above that initial platform, which can be repeated floor by floor and making for a quick and efficient labor saving construction which has now evolved further with the use of modern steel wood connectors.
