Home How do they Build in Boston? Visiting a new home in Framing
The way houses are built in the Northeast is very different from homes in Texas. In this video, Matt Risinger explores the specifics of building techniques along with his friend and building colleague, Nick Schiffer, at a newly renovated home in Boston, MA. From liquid flash sheathing to foundation, nail gun use vs. hammers, luxury floor ratings, advanced framing, exterior insulation debates, and detailed strapping, the duo tear the home-build apart. The duo analyze unique building qualities that are common to the area. Some of the impressive framing and carpentry details in the home are ones Risinger hasn't heard of before, including building a new home with walnut treads that are pocket screwed. Watch the full video to learn more about building differences depending on region.
