Framing a Custom Home & ADU in Poway
Good morning, everyone. This is Brandon with Freeman’s Construction. I’m back here at this job in Poway. This is a brand new custom home and ADU that we’re building. There’s a framing crew here, they’re bringing together all the walls. They will be standing most of them today, and finish up tomorrow. I just want to give you a look and show you the progress that has been made.
Top & Bottom Plating | Custom Home & ADU
As I mentioned, the framing crew is bringing together all these walls. What happens before the framing crew shows up, I think I talked about it in a previous video, but all this plating, the bottom and top plate get done. You can see these marks on the following so that you know where they go and the size needed:
- Corner Posts
They nailed the top plate and the bottom plate and marked through their lines so that when these guys show the walls are already marked out. They can just take that top plate off, put it on the other side of the lumber, and start nailing.
Walls Being Built for Poway Custom Home
We’re at the front of the house here. It’s going to be a really nice covered entryway, but I’ll walk in and show you some of the walls being built. It’s noisy here with the sound of production. All these walls are getting built laying down, once they’re ready to stand up everyone comes over, spreads out and lifts. All the plating and detailing gets done prior to the crew showing up and all these window boxes get built as well. So they just lay those out and start nailing lumber together.
Accessory Dwelling Unit Framing & Main Home Updates
This is the master bedroom I’m standing in, the master bathroom, and then the ADU over here. The accessory dwelling unit will be stood up probably first, but we’re just about done building the walls for that. This is for the back of the main house here, we have a really large 16 foot wide that goes right there where the guy in green is standing. There’s also an extremely large 20 foot header laying on the ground, that’s their three car garage. These are manufactured with a crown in them and stamped on the top. The crown always goes towards the top, so you eliminate the sagging that could happen.
Framing Progress Update for Poway Home & ADU
There is a lot going on here at this job, by the end of today, this job will look a lot different. Most of these walls will stand up. I’ll do a video follow up to this one, just to show you the progress that’s been made in one day. It’s an exciting day and the homeowners are thrilled, rightfully so, seeing their new home going up. Thanks for watching! Have a wonderful day.
