  • In a wood-frame house, the sill is a wooden member that rests on top of the foundation (and, per today's building codes, is anchored to it by bolts). In post-and-beam construction, the bottom ends of posts rest on the sill; in a balloon frame, the bottom ends of studs and the ends of floor joists; in a platform frame, the ends of floor joists only.

In houses constructed of wood, studs are the vertical structural members in the walls. The studs transmit vertical forces (loads) from the roof and/or floor above to, ultimately, the foundation of the house. The studs also provide something to which to attach the exterior wall sheathing and interior wall finish (e.g., lath and plaster or sheetrock).
