Where Do You Stand on Advanced Framing?
You probably already know advanced framing techniques can save you money and lumber, reduce thermal bridging and create a greener home. But are you incorporating it into your designs? Do your framers understand how it works?
Advanced framing is a topic in all of Build It Green's Certified Green Building Professional trainings. You can also take an Advanced Framing course as part of Build It Green's new Learning Management System (LMS). This online class should take less than two hours and earn you 1 CEU.
We’ve assembled some additional resources to help you understand, simplify and adopt advanced framing.
