Build Like a Pro: Cutting Floor Joists to Length

Learn time-saving techniques for the cutting and layout of joists.

Framer Jim Anderson, author and owner of Great White Construction in Littleton, Colorado, saves time by laying out all of his joists and aligning them on one side of the foundation before cutting. Then, with the snap of a chalkline, the other side is measured all at once. For more construction and framing techniques, read Anderson's article on Framing With a Crane and watch his video on Hand Signals for Cranes.
