Top Customer Reviews

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.

I own the older version of this book but all of these publications are excellent. They are also very reasonably priced. Compared to the full building code books (which are like encyclopedias in size), the material here is clear and concise and in an easy to carry format. There are plenty of diagrams and the text is clear and easy to understand. It was an invaluable resource for my education and continues to provide insight even after working in the field for years. If you are interested in home design, renovation, or have any questions as a homeowner then do no hesitate to buy this book. The Dewalt handbooks are an excellent complement to check out as well if you want to actually build things yourself!

I rely on amazon reviews all the time. So, I thought it is my duty to inform everyone in the amazon.ca community that this book and more can be downloaded from the CMHC website for free (under publications and reports sections).

This book was extremely informative. It contains the information needed to build a home to code in Canada. Every topic is covered from start to finish.

Great book for homeowners who do renovations or those looking to frame a construction from scratch (shed, garage, or even a house). Based on the 2005 Canadian Building Code, so there are some changes since but the book is still very relevant

For ANYONE involved in trades, home builders, and home owners. Simple to read, and understand. Used as a text book for many trades related courses. If you own one book on construction, this should be it!
