Building Process Video 21
2ND FLOOR FRAMING
Here is the 21st Video in our ongoing Building Process Video Series. The second floor framing is done in the same way as the 1st floor. It is critical that the framing contractor stands walls plumb and square and in the proper place. Once the second floor framing is complete, we will swing roof trusses.
I am re-releasing this page. I just realized that the next step video (roof trusses)had not been linked to and some viewers may have thought this was the last video completed in the series.

Video Series from the Beginning
LOT PREPARATION 1
STAY TUNED, MORE TO COME..
We will be continuing our Building Process Video Series for the next several months. The typical residential project takes 4-6 months, however, our Las Vegas Project is a 10,000 square foot custom home. It will take a total of 12 months to complete. While it may not be exactly what most owner builders are undertaking, it will demonstrate the building process that is common to all projects.
Remember, these videos are brief and fairly general. They are meant to familiarize owner builders with the building process. There is a lot of additional education and experience that an owner builder should seek out before starting their own project. As they say, knowledge is power.
Our goal is to show owner builders that a complicated, enormous custom home is built the in same way, using the same contractors, subcontractors, steps and materials, as the smaller, "simpler" projects that most of us plan to build. Of course, there will be unique challenges that may not apply to an individual's owner builder experience. They will, however, hopefully address another's issues.
I hope the videos are enjoyable and informative. I am still learning how to shoot and edit video. As time goes on, I will probably go back and re-edit some of the videos I have already done.FREE CONTRACTOR DIRECTORY , simply fill out the request form on our submission page and I will enter your company information myself. Also, if you are an owner builder who has worked with a top notch contractor that may benefit from a free listing, steer them our way.
