Framing Floors for the Trades


May 23, 2022

Kicking off a series of updates that will span the complete construction of The House The Blues Built, a 4,000-plus-square-foot, high performance custom home currently under construction in Massachusetts—and being closely followed by both PRODUCTS and Custom Builder magazine—builder and famed blues artist Albert Cummings (whose new album is recently available) shares insights on the team's progress as well as insights on how better floor framing can make for happier subcontractors. 

With the home's foundation lain and framing underway, Cummings walks us through the jobsite, pointing out his preference for open-web floor joists.
