Rough framing is the basic need of any construction. Things you will need for the purpose are measuring tape, framing square, measuring square, chalk line, hammer, nails and saw.
A blueprint is a must before you even start. It is one important thing that many contractors face problems with. A good blueprint made by a person with a degree makes your job a lot more organized than you would have thought. Joist layout is the next step where you should consider the walls above to stay stud over the joist or roof rafter over stud so as to transfer the maximum possible load onto concrete support. You should know the general marks of framing ‘X’s and ‘O’s, where X denotes where a full stud goes and O where a cut stud goes.
Now after sheeting is done on the sub-floors, snap all the wall lines to decide where to layout your top and bottom plates.
Modern architecture uses laminated glass beautifully to enhance the look of the modern homes. Lamination is done so that the glass becomes stronger and can resist external weather forces like strong winds, hurricanes and other such strong impacts. The high rise buildings which have their outer structure built and designed in glass make use of these laminated glasses to make sure that no damage occurs to these glasses due to external environmental pressure and conditions.
These are even used in some of the modern automobiles so that the glass does not suffer from cracks or breakages if any object strikes it or if any mishap occurs. These laminated glasses are specially used for safety purposes in the modern architecture. Even museums use these glasses to preserve ancient antiques and records inside the laminated glass cabinets. These even facilitate the entering of the sunlight in buildings and rooms pretty easily.
