Non Advanced Framing?
In the November edition of Fine Homebuilding there is an article called “A Slick Approach to Straightening Walls” By Roe A. Osborn. Good enough article on wall straightening technique, but I couldn’t help noticing how much framing lumber is used in the pictured walls. Double 2×6 jack studs and double, or triple, or even quadruple king studs throughout the house. Looks like full thickness headers were used, regardless of whether the walls are load bearing or not. Double sill plates as well. I wonder what the framing factor of these walls are… There is probably enough framing lumber in this house to build two houses using Advanced Framing strategies.
