Related Terminology

Band-Board

/bandˌbôrd/
noun

The perimeter floor joist that sits atop the sill in a wood floor framing system.

Cantilever

/ˈkan(t)lˌēvər/
noun

A rigid structural element, such as a beam or a plate, anchored at only one end to a (usually vertical) support from which it is protruding; this could also be a perpendicular connection to a flat vertical surface such as a wall.

Cantilever construction allows for overhanging structures without external bracing, in contrast to constructions supported at both ends with loads applied between the supports, such as a simply supported beam found in a post and lintel system.

Cricket

/ˈkrikit/
noun

A cricket, or saddle, is a ridge structure designed to divert water on a roof around the high side of a chimney or the transition from one roof area to another; the cricket is normally the same pitch as the rest of the roof, but not always.
