"In-line framing" is a framing technique and structural design that vertically aligns floor, wall and roof framing. It transfers the weight of the structure and the room directly downward. New engineering studies by HUD and DOE verify that the structure is sound. This framing technique will result in savings on materials and labor in finishing both the interior and the exterior of the home or the addition.
