    • Plywood, tongue and grove boards are commonly used.
    • The sub floor serves three purposes:
      • Adds structural stability to the structure.
      • Provides a base for finish flooring material. Carpet/tile
      • Provides a floor for the carpenter to layout and construct additional framing.
      • When laying down the sub floor, use some type of adhesive to glue down. After gluing the sub floor to floor joists attach with metal fastener, screws/nails
          • This will prevent future squeaking and add 25% additional structural stability.
  • Wall Framing
    • In modern framing, walls and ceiling joists form one structural system.
      • Walls support the ceiling, and the ceiling add structural stability to the walls.
