Description

Most of the books available on carpentry are either dry textbooks, incomplete project-based books, or books of building/architectural details. The Complete Visual Guide to Building a House takes a different, step-by-step approach, with full-colour drawings of every step in the building process from laying a foundation through to installing the finishing touch on a newel post. Combining the expertise of builder John Carroll and the engaging drawings of illustrator Chuck Lockhart, this book is a complete course in residential carpentry and construction from the voice (and hand) of experience.
