    • Weather barrier paper is applied to sheathing and serves as an air barrier  to reduce leaking air through joints and as a waterproofing backing underneath sidings.
    • Attic ventilation is used not only to allow water vapor to escape, but to prevent solar heat buildup conducted through the roof and roof sheathing by drawing air through the spaces keeping the house cooler. Soffit Vent- also known as Frieze vent. Gable Vent Covered with slot covered insect screening allows airflow in rafters while keeping out insects

    • Emergency and escape openings must meet a maximum height of 44” and opening Size of 5.7 square feet . Any number of combinations are required for an opening to be Effective with height no less than 24” and opening no less than 20”. This window meets Code due to a height above finished floor of 26” and an opening of 35 ½”. Window requirements 35 ½” 26 “ AFF
    • Wood Framed Stairs Tread 10” Riser 5 ½” Meets code because it stays within dimensions Tread min. 4”- 7” Riser Min 11”
    • Control Joints - ¼” depth slab weaken by a recess joint in hopes to relieve stress that the concrete will crack to that joint. Control Joint Control Joint Crack to Control Joint
    • Isolation Joint Isolation joint is a padding of concrete underneath a point of pressure so that the slab will not crack. Column is isolated from the slab
    • Concrete Masonry units (CMU) primarily serve as foundations, retaining walls, and fireplaces. They are larger solid units than brick and are less expensive. Actual dimensions 7 5/8” x 7 5/8” x 15 5/8” : Nominal 8” x 8” x 16” 1 CMU = 3 Modular Bricks
    • 10” CMU- both ends plain
    • 4” CMU- both ends plain
    • -6 panel wood Stile and Rail door Top Rail Panels stile Lock Rail Bottom Rail
    • Transom- glass glazing Sidelight- Glass Glazing   above door on sides of door Transom Sidelights Sidelights
    • Flush Door- usually interior but can be exterior hollow  or solid core door
    • Power pole w/ transformer- local transmission Service Head- two hot wires and one lines carry direct current voltage converted w/ Neutral wire carrying current enter A transformer to alternating current. House through a service head.
    • Service Panel- also called panel board holds and Meter- after leaving service head current controls circuits throughout Travels down to the meter base which holds the house with a disconnect and measures power usage. switch and a man breaker.
    • Duplex receptacle- the circuits( branches of electrical service)  travel to GFI also known as Duplex receptacle which are normally located in kitchens which hold most of appliance electricity.
    • Anchor Bolt Sill Plate
    • Floor Joist 
    • Stringer Subflooring  
    • Sole plate Stud   Stud Wall
    • Top Plate Ceiling Joist   Ceiling Joist Ceiling Joist
    • Rafters
    • Sheathing
    • Engineering vehicle used to load and move around dirt, gravel and other materials another machine and/or to a location.
    • Gypsum Board is a building material known as drywall that is made of gypsum plaster placed between two sheets of paper that is then kiln dried.
    • A component of the forced air system used to move heat and air through ducts to all Rooms through a process called convection. Advantage: allows the ability to filter air and control humidity while heating and cooling. Disadvantage: Relatively noisy and controls bulky ducts Air Handling Unit- absorbs direct Compressor- condenses air and rejects heat Expansion and supplies air to ducts.
    • Any material that is added to the perimeter of a building to slow down the conduction of heat flow referred to as thermal insulation. Most critical spaces are the walls and Ceiling. Batt/ Blanket- wedge in between Framing
    • Lintels are steel or concrete angles placed above window and door openings to Support opening span. Typically reinforced brick or block lintel or precast concrete. Concrete Lintel
    • Concave Mortar Joint- 3/8”thick, tooled, public education building, Type M Mortar- High Strength Exterior
    • Flush Joint- trowled, 3/8 ” thick, exterior,Type M Morta
    • OSB- a softwood made of long strand-like wood particle that are compresses and glued into three to five layers. OSB is generally stronger because of the length and compression of the strands and is stiffer than veneered panels. Used as Sheathing.
    • Lavatory Washing area that flushes waste out to the building drain and down to building sewer 1 ½” -2” pipe
    • Water closet Any room that has a toilet ; toilets are the only fixture that uses cold water
    • Manufactured Tub during rough in Plumbing vent Plumbing vent is apart of the Drain Waste Vent System(DWV) that allows the escape of sewer gases contained by p-traps.

    • Veneer-thin slices of wood glued onto Five core panels to produce plywood. Manufactured wood. 4’ x 8’ sheet Plywood
    • Found only in attics and reflect up to 97% of heat stored in attics. Since most of the heat in Homes escapes and enters through the attic, the radiant barrier acts much like a form of Insulation.
    • The deformation on the surface help it To bond tightly to concrete. This rebar is ½ in diameter. It Is referred to as a #4 rebar.
    • Gutter- allows for rain  and melted snow to be collected to from roofing to prevent moisture and water damage.
