We Like to Think Inside the Box

Thinking Inside the Box

Old Dominion Building Group only thinks inside the box when details are important. In the attached photo you can see that the first floor walls are going up. We call this making the box. Did you know that great pain is made over how square the framing is for the walls. It starts with a simple tool called a Chalkline. What a great invention. The string when held taut between two points lays the truth for the framer to follow. If the first floor is not laid straight and square, you will have wavy walls and lots of fudge work to correct the floors above. Attention to detail and doing it right the first time are the hallmark of a good construction project.
