Rough Carpentry

Alliance’s carpenters provide wood framing, wood trusses, wall and roof sheathing, window installation, backing, roof blocking etc. If you walk by a construction site and see the building skeleton, it may seem like the real construction work has yet to begin. However, the skeleton, or rough frame, is the most important structural component of the building. Our experienced carpenters work on the rough framing to turn blueprints into the sturdy internal structure of the building. We measure, cut, and assemble lumber for the walls and subfloor, adding anchors and other vital structural supports. We measure and attach studs around the spaces for doors and windows, and sets joists for the ceiling, and trusses for the roof. We may also need to use complicated geometry if the building includes arches or cathedral ceilings.

Thank you for your hard work and support of McDonald’s throughout this process. I would like to personally thank each of you for your long hours, numerous headaches, and high quality of work. We are very pleased with the building, location, and design of this small town retail pace. I look forward to working with all of you in the future.
