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.
