Framing and Siding Carpenters

January 2018 | Press

Framing and siding carpenters precisely measure, cut and assemble the framing lumber needed to build residential and commercial buildings. Our carpenters work throughout northern Idaho and eastern Washington, from Coeur d'Alene to the surrounding areas including Liberty Lake, WA and Spokane's South Hill. They construct what becomes the framework for the rest of the building and may be involved in other components needed throughout the job. Blueprints typically guide framing and siding carpenters in constructing the project.

Ideal candidate is well-versed in the standard methods, materials, tools and equipment used in framing and siding; understands the occupational hazards applicable to the work and adheres to OSHA and Edwards Smith Construction safety requirements; is able to understand and follow oral and written instructions; is committed to clean and tight framing where plumb and level is within 1/8-inch; is expected to construct exterior components as accurately and cleanly as interior trim carpentry; is able to read and interpret blueprints; is able to lift and carry heavy objects (up to 100 pounds), such as framing lumber, sheets of plywood and other building materials; is able to bend and swing a hammer 70 percent of the time; is comfortable with heights; is able to withstand extreme weather conditions; understands math functions and calculations involving fractions; is able to read tape and speed square; and is skilled in the use and care of hand and small power tools associated with the work.
