Fundamentals of Woodworking
Lesson 10 Roof Construction and Trim Carpentry
The previous chapters have dealt with framing wood structures, including joists, studs, rafters, and other structural members. These constitute "rough carpentry" and are the main supports of a wood-frame structure. (Subflooring and wall and roof sheathing strengthen and brace the frame.) The remaining work on the structure involves installing the nonstructural members. This work, referred to as "finish carpentry," is divided into exterior and interior finish. Exterior finish material consist of roof sheathing, exterior trim, roof coverings, outside wall covering, and exterior doors and windows.
