Funny Construction Terms . . .

Are we playing poker or framing in a window? These terms crack me up . . .

King Stud : the first, full height stud on either side of a door or window opening.

Jack Stud : the short studs that support the header over a doorway or window opening. It’s also called a trimmer stud and it is attached to the king stud.

Cripple Stud : the short stud under a window or above a door opening.
