You can't go wrong with the price of this book. However, if you purchase directly from the Canadian Housing and Mortgage Company (the publisher), you can also receive a glossary of housing terms which proves to be quite useful when using the book. If you're and engineering student, contractor or you just want to build your own wood frame house, this reference based on the 2005 building code is a must. However, be sure to also get your hands on the 2005 building code as this book is simply a great supplement to the code with insights and tips on how to improve the quality and cost of your construction. Overall, an easy, non-technical read with great insight and included design tables.

I have this book checked out from a local library. It's very
infomative and very well-illustrated; however, the illustrations
are a little small, as seems to be the case with many book nowadays.

The inclussion of the most important and/or relevant tables from
the Nat. Bldg Code at the back of the book is a time saving
source of info. Overall, CHMC has done a very good job of sumarizing
the Nat. Bldg Code; just remember, you'll still have to refer
to your local Code for anything you build.

This book is a must-have in anyone's reference shelf who is working in wood frame construction. A cornerstone of Canadian design.

When I bought this book I didn't pay attention that it was based on the old OBC. However, still a really good reference book.
