Identify Material Needed to build these Structures.


Flooring and Wall System 

Framing is the structure its "the frame of the house." Its whats under your floors and in your walls. The distances between the Joists are very important. If they are too far apart the floor and structure is very unstable. For example over time the floor will bend in and mabey even cave in. Jp told us Jayman's joists are more far apart thats why in some of their houses their floors sqeak. We cut some two by fours in order to make crosss bracing or blocking. This adds more support making the framing sturier. They slide in between the joists. Squash Blocks are upwards against the joists holding them in place. We nailed together two long two by fours which made a brace. It holds the weight of the frames/structure.

The material needed to build a wall include 2x4's, plywood, and Nails.

 Step 1: layout 2x4’s in the following fashion making sure that they are doubled at the ends to support weight. 

Step 2:  Measure each stud to be 16 inches apart from each other. 

Step 3: Nail in 2 nails in the top and bottom of each stud. 

Step 4: Take your measuring tape and make sure that each corner-to-corner measurement is the same.  If not move boards in accordingly.

 Step 5: nail sheeting to the wall and erect it.
