Product Description

From the Back Cover

How to achieve a perfect finish

You already know that the building isn't finished just because the walls are up and the roof is on. Interior details—flooring, stairs, trimwork, cabinets, fireplaces, and painting—finish the project and give it character. This guide clearly explains each step, discusses the tools involved, and even examines insulation, termite protection, maintenance, and how to set up a workshop that makes it all easier.

  • Determine coverage rates for various paints and make the selection that fits your project
  • Explore the advantages of paint spray guns and high-pressure water treatments
  • Analyze types of insulation and choose one that provides peak efficiency
  • Learn the pros and cons of different types of chimneys and prefabricated fireplaces
  • Design and plan a workshop with the equipment and machinery you'll need for finishing
  • Take advantage of an extensive glossary of carpentry and building terms
