Housebuilding has always been the book of choice for prospective home builders—and with this extensive, thoughtful revision, it becomes a resource readers will continue to depend on for years to come. In addition to showcasing 800 exciting new full-color illustrations and more than 50 color photographs, an improved two-column design makes the text easier to follow. Photo captions—not in previous editions—allow readers to browse through quickly. Also included for the first time: a chapter on environmentally friendly building alternatives; increased emphasis on safety; information on modern cordless tools; updated techniques, materials, and standards; energy-efficient options, from structural insulated panels to radiant floor heating; a current appendix of major manufacturers, resources, and websites; and much, much more.
