Wood framed construction is a building system that uses wooden studs, joists and rafters to support the load of a structure. This method of construction is used for residential and low-rise structures in North America and Europe.

These wood members are often fabricated from dimensional lumber such as 2x4s and 2x6s. The main advantage of using dimensional lumber is that it allows builders to create large sections of wall quickly.

There are many different types of wood-frame construction systems, including balloon framing, platform framing and post-and-beam framing. Each type has its own strengths and weaknesses depending on environmental factors such as wind speed or snow loads.
