This book, in plain language, illustrates powerful green framing techniques. Roofs, walls, and floors, with their subparts and pieces, are carefully examined. Wasteful practices are exposed, efficient ones suggested. Readers are shown how to design the most efficient rafters, beams, studs, and footings.  
With this knowledge any builder can break the wasteful habits of old - use the right materials in the right places. Any designer can confidently produce efficient, code-compliant plans.
Includes 23 photographs, and 32 sketches.
The benefits of green framing include:
* Save thousands of dollars in materials and manpower on every project.
* Conserve significant natural resources: wood, concrete, and steel, and the energy consumed producing them.
* Less wood used leaves more room for insulation. Significant energy savings result over the life of the structure.
* Cut out unnecessary wood, concrete and steel, and earthquake forces on a building diminish proportionally.

Denise Dersin, Editor In Chief, Builder Magazine,
on Tim’s Article: “Save Me $2,000 Or No Soup For You!”

“I have been in the building industry for more than 20 years and I loved this book. The content is great, the writing style is relaxed yet speaks with authority — and it cracked me up on many occasions. I learned something on every page. Teaching technical lessons in a fun way is a gift that probably 3 engineers on the planet have — and Tim Garrison is one of them. Highly recommended.”
