AbstractThe purpose of the house frame is to give shape, strength, and rigidity to the finished structure under normal conditions of use and climatic loadings. How well any particular house frame does this depends upon size and grading of the lumber and upon the planning and carpentry. As a secondary purpose, we might say that the frame provides a skeleton to which insulation and other exterior and interior materials are attached.
