For more than a quarter century, and at more than 350,000 copies sold, this has been the classic book on housebuilding. Now, for the first time since its publication, R.J. DeCristoforo's indispensable guide to home construction has had its own sparkling renovation, with many newly revised drawings, additional photos, and a thoroughly updated text. First-timers tackling the ambitious project of building a house will find the most comprehensive, helpful how-to available: everything is here, from permits to framing to installing trim. Procedures such as positioning doors & windows, laying a foundation, and setting up a drainage system are simplified so that you know exactly what you need to get the job done. Consult the detailed diagrams to keep yourself on track as you complete each step. Whether you want to do it all yourself or involve professionals, this all-inclusive volume will prepare you financially, psychologically, and practically for the entire job, from the first shovelful of soil to the last nail in the roof. And it is an incredible value: 640 pages for only $19.95!.
