Construction Jargon
Terms

You might have heard such Home
Builder Construction Terms such as
slump
, bird mouth or jitter bug and
wonder how these words could refer to
Home Construction.

An experienced contractor will be able
to tell pretty quick if someone is
knowledgeable with Construction
Terminology. As in any profession,
communication is one of the most
important aspects of the job. If people
cannot understand what is being
discussed, the possibility of making
mistakes increases and can affect the
overall quality and progress of the
project.
Home Builder Jargon contains a list of
Construction Terms that are essential
to be able to communicate and
understand Construction Terminology.
Over the years these construction
Terms have been passed down from
generation to generation to produce a
large  Construction Dictionary of
terms. Even though home construction
technology has improved over past
thirty years, home Construction
Terminology has remained primarily
the same during this period of time.

Construction Terms are used from the
home foundation stage all the way
through to the final finish stage. In the
home foundation stage, Construction
Terms such as
bull float, slump, jitter
bug,
honey comb , grade beam, etc are  
just a few of many home building
jargon terms that will be required in
order to communicate during this stage
of home construction. The house
framing stage is another critical stage
in the construction of a home. During
this stage you might hear Home Builder
Jargon terms such as
stud, barge
rafter, bird box, hip, gable, stringer,
ceiling joist
, or header.

The New Home Construction Dictionary
that I have compiled will help you
understand the construction terms not
only with a definition but also with
hundreds of home construction pics
that pertain to each particular
Construction term.

The construction process of building a
home is a complicated process if looked
at as a whole. However, if the total
process is broken down into categories
that pertain to particular task, the
process will seem a lot less complicated.
I have broken the total process down
into categories that I feel create a
critical path in the construction of a
home. Having a knowledge
Construction Terms and each category
is important but knowing how these
categories relate to each other is even
more important.

For example, in the framing category
you might see Construction Terms such
as "blocking" or "deadwood". These
are very important Construction Terms
and show the need for a good
Construction Dictionary or glossary.
The home builder jargon term
"
blocking" can refer to towel bar
blocking, curtain blocking, handrail
blocking, or tub blocking. The home
builder jargon term "
deadwood" is a
House Framing  jargon term that refers
to pieces of wood that are nailed in
place in order to be able to secure
something in the future. Both of these
Home Construction Terms are very
important as they have to be completed
before the sheet rock category. Having
the knowledge of these  Construction
Terms and how they can affect future
work is very critical. Without all the
essential blocking completed in the
framing stage, the installation of
accessories and other critical items
such as handrails will be impossible in
the finish stage.

You should be able to see that because
of the above example, a good
Construction Terms Dictionary can be a
very important home construction tool
to have during a home construction
project. New Home Construction Jargon
is an excellent construction glossary
full of construction definitions and
construction pictures that will allow any
new home builder to talk with
confidence about each stage of
construction. The hundreds of
construction pictures will also give a
clearer picture of the construction
process and Construction Terms.
