Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Update your home with new windows and doors and save energy, too. Marshall, carpenter and author, addresses the importance of lighting, ventilation, and security for the home. A gallery of inspirational photos is followed by a discussion of materials-styles and selection of windows or doors and related hardware. Included is consideration for use by those with limited mobility or strength. Planning, layout, and installation are covered next. Good, logical, step-by-step instructions walk the reader through simple to more complex projects, but basic techniques are tucked in the back appendix. Excellent coverage of the topic. Recommended.
