Modern A frame cabin:
Framing, in construction, is the fitting together of pieces to give a structure support and shape.[1] Framing materials are usually wood,engineered wood, or structural steel. Building framing is divided into two broad categories,[2] heavy-frame construction (heavy framing) if the vertical supports are few and heavy such as in timber framing, pole building framing, or steel framing or many and smaller called light-frame construction (light framing) including balloon, platform and light-steel framing. Light-frame construction using standardized dimensional lumber has become the dominant construction method in North America and Australia because of itseconomy. Use of minimal structural material allows builders to enclose a large area with minimal cost, while achieving a wide variety of architectural styles.
