Format: Paperback
This is a great visual guide for those who are not master builders. This book pretty much covers every aspect of house building from A to Z.
I can't emphasize enough of this book's value. This is a must owned book for house owners.

A great book that includes many of the technical aspects involved in today's construction of residential housing including renovations. A good reference book that can help any seasoned tradesman refresh and enhance their technical skills. "Meet The Code" sections in the book are great basic references and can be helpful in initiating proper construction practices on any site.

Great reference book. However it is for the US and not Canada so most of the climate data is incorrect. It then brings into question some of the building code references.
