Good how to text book for Framing Oct. 10 2009
By J. Carlisle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
"Ultimate Guide to House Framing, 3rd edition" is a well written reference manual for how to frame a house or garage.
Well written - If you plan to do any building a must own.
What I liked:
-1/3 of the entire book is diagrams showing "how" to.
-book covers many different types of framing, and shows several different techniques.
-It points out where you should consult your local building codes to see if certain items apply ( i.e. do you need hurricane straps)
-well organized into logical chapters.
-A high emphasis is placed on safety and the proper use of power tools.
-The author take the time to explain the basics and tell you how to do thing properly.
What I didn't like.
- nothing.

Gave me Confidence Needed to Begin Home-Building Process Feb. 17 2010
By George Donnelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Before I used to think building a house was impossible. I had no idea what went into it. It seemed much too difficult or complicated for me. This book has helped open what before seemed like a black box.

The book is chock-full with pictures. It starts with safety suggestions, tells you what tools you'll need, talks about some engineering basics and goes into great detail on floors, walls and different kinds of roofs. There are additional sections on stairs, basements and bay windows.

If you're new to framing and want to build your own home, or at least understand how a lot of it works, you will enjoy this book.

Only For Beginners! Aug. 22 2010
By Ray - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a very well writen book with plenty of pictures, but it is for people with limited construction experence. I bought this book because I need rafter tables, specificialy jack-hip rafter tables. This book does not have any roofing tables and gives three paragraphs about reading a jack-hip rafter table (but does not have the table). If you have more than three years of residential construction experence, you should already know everything in this book.

Good Stuff. Dec 5 2012
By zats - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Useful for me. I am a nail-pounder NOT carpenter. My biggest difficulty in wood butchery is visualizing the finished product.

I'm told all good carpenters can do this feat; I have yet to gain this expertise. The book helps me by taking the lead in "what to do next".

Excellent starting point June 6 2011
By Matthew J. Facas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had looked at several books on framing before ordering this book and another. I am handy and been involved in some repairs and remolding in the past. The current project is a large ground up multi-floor workshop area. While my area has no building code I want to go with generally accepted building practices. This book covers most areas extremely well. The pictures and diagrams are very clear and easy to understand.
