Complete Rough Framing of Your Custom Home

Part 2

By Todd Delahunt – Delahunt Homes, Portland Oregon

The floor systems, walls and roof systems are completed (collectively known as the shell or skeleton of the house). Plywood or oriented strand board sheathing is applied to the exterior walls and roof, and windows and exterior doors are installed. The sheathing is then covered with a protective barrier known as a house wrap; it prevents liquid water from infiltrating the frame of you custom home, while allowing water vapor to escape. This reduces the likelihood of mold and rot.
