house is the wall. The wall is the main structural element that holds up, protects, and identifies the house. A wall is part of the skeleton of a house. Copyright Texas Education Agency, 2012. All rights reserved. Trad ition Con al stru ction 4 The building of a wall structure goes back in time, but we will focus on the most current and

typical method for wall construction. Using lumber framing members for our construction materials, lets look at the inside of a wall. Copyright Texas Education Agency, 2012. All rights reserved. Wall Term inolo gy 5 The terms discussed are some of the common terms used in construction. There are many other terms, nicknames, and

designations given to construction materials. Some of the terms may come from a specific manufacturer or region. Copyright Texas Education Agency, 2012. All rights reserved. Wall Term inolo gy 6 The basic framing member of a wall is the stud. This usually is a 2 x 4 - a 2 x 4 piece of precut and usually pretreated wood Even though it is

designated as a 2 x 4, this is just the nominal size. The actual size is 11/2 x 3-1/2. Copyright Texas Education Agency, 2012. All rights reserved. Wall Stud s 7 Studs are used in many ways for framing a house. The most common is the main vertical member for just a common wall, but we also have King and Jack studs. Copyright Texas Education Agency, 2012. All rights reserved. King and

Jack Stud s 8 King studs are used at an opening in the wall, such as a door or window opening. Jack studs are used in conjunction with a King stud to help support the header at an opening in the wall. These are also known as a Trimmer stud. Copyright Texas Education Agency, 2012. All rights reserved. Tope and Sole

Plate s 9 The Top Plate and Sole Plate create the enclosing parts of a wall. Copyright Texas Education Agency, 2012. All rights reserved. Tope and Plate Sole s, C o ntin ued 10 The top plate will cap off the wall. It will act as

a support and member for placing ceiling joists or roof rafters. This is usually a double 2x4 framing member. The sole plate is used as a base and layout template for the wall. It will also act as an anchor to the foundation. Copyright Texas Education Agency, 2012. All rights reserved. Crip ple, H ea der, an d Sill 11

Some other important members are the Cripple, Header ,and Sill. Copyright Texas Education Agency, 2012. All rights reserved. Crip ple, H ea der, Sill, an d Con tinu ed 12 A cripple is studs that are not full length due to an opening in a wall. A header is a horizontal

beam placed over an opening onto studs for support. A sill is a horizontal framing member used under an opening such as a window. Copyright Texas Education Agency, 2012. All rights reserved. Dimensions are sizes and measurements. Dim ensi ons 13 Copyright Texas Education Agency, 2012. All rights reserved. Dim ensi

ons and O.C. 14 Dimensions give the exact sizes or measurements for certain elements of construction. The dimensions usually follow a certain format throughout the whole project. They can be given in feet, metric, or other units of measure. O.C. is an abbreviation for On Center - this means that you measure from the center of one stud to the center of the next stud.
