Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
A workbook in the fullest sense, this goes well beyond the crash courses in home building and words of encouragement of similar books. The first 10 chapters take a practical management approach to such things as financing, site selection, working with subcontractors, legal concerns, even how to cope with inevitable worry. The remaining chapters treat the stages of home building from excavation to landscaping. Included for each is a logical task sequence, a list of specifications to be used in subcontractor agreements, an inspection checklist, and a glossary of unique terms. The lengthy appendixes offer scores of adaptable forms as well as a critical path master project schedule. An exhaustive work, recommended for public libraries serving knowledgeable amateur builders.
