Asheville Framing Safety Meeting

There is never a time not to be safe with our crew. We pay attention to risks and regularly discuss even things we may think we are "used to". A happy successful job is a safe job. Simple discussions like this may not save everyone, but it reminds us that a mistake can happen to anyone, and even more when safety is not a concern.

Asheville Framing & Perry Bartsch strategize


Ben from Asheville Framing and Building and Brian from Perry Bartsch Jr. Construction talk about the project, some issues, some concerns, some good news, some bad... the everyday life of construction in Western North Carolina.

Ben and Todd discuss the roof trusses

On this particular job, Asheville Framing is matching about 10 feet of new trusses (5 trusses) to an existing roof that has become far from perfect over the years. We always welcome a second opinion when it comes to making sure it is right, or in trying to find the best way to effectively do something on any of our projects.

Asheville Framing & Building has the tools we need!


Here you can see one of Asheville Framing & Buildings men attaching an extension to the screw gun to screw the floor sheathing down. We make sure our men have the tools to complete the job. We understand that many phases of a project cannot be completed with out proper tools and safety equipement. We ensure that all of our men are properly trained with the tools that they are using.

Reading Blue Prints is how the Job gets done Right!


If you are in the building industry you know that reading blue prints PROPERLY means all the difference in the world to getting the job done right- the first time around. Our men at Asheville Framing & Building know how to read and understand blue prints. We do not except mistakes and the only way to avoid most of them is to be able to comprehend which wall goes where, what size measurement to cut this particular 2X, etc. We consistently refer back to the plans to confirm our progress is correct. We understand the importance of prints and using them daily. If one measurement is off... the framing inspection could fail which means trouble across the board. We make sure our work is correct!
