Footing and Framing
Footings and Framing go hand and hand. The best way to frame the ADU is for the same contractor to install the footing and rough framing at the same time.
Save time and ask the framer to provide an estimate for the installation of any required footings and all the rough framing.
Below are the steps required to pass the rough framing inspection. An experienced ADU framer will know what to do.
INSTALLATION OF THE SHEAR WALLS
Items required to pass Framing inspection
Footings, if not available
Rough framing, including rough framing around new windows and front door door
Anchor bolts & hold-downs. Must pass a special epoxy inspection.
Installation of new construction windows and front door
Roof airflow vents
A different approach, to building an ADU
Our unconventional construction strategy is miles away from the practices of ADU companies. If you only need framing our contractors will be happy to help with only the services you inquire. Unlike other companies that want to build the entire project. We will do our best to provide homeowners with an honest and fair estimate.
