Sit back and watch Larry Haun and his brother Joe build the exterior and interior walls of a basic 1,600-sq. ft. house in front of your eyes. You'll almost smell the sawdust as they show you every tool and every step involved in framing a house.

Starting from marking the completed floor deck, they take you step by step through the entire process, showing you practical ways to organize tasks, streamline procedures and handle tools and materials efficiently. Here's your chance to watch a framing master at work, and to become a better, more efficient carpenter yourself.

Each section of the tape covers a specific topic in detail:

  • Layout plating headers
  • Cripples, trimmers, and rough sills
  • Detailing plates
  • Building and raising walls
  • Plumbing and lining
  • Sheathing walls

The companion book to this video is The Very Efficient Carpenter. Larry Haun has been a production framer for almost 40 years and a teacher of apprentices for almost 25 years. He has honed his skills and techniques on hundreds of tract and custom houses, finding countless ways to save time, reduce costs, minimize problems and improve quality.
