Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Through line drawings and text, Thallon (Graphic Guide to Frame Construction, Taunton, 1991) explains the installation of interior materials to the structural shell of a building. Each chapter describes the various materials that can be used and the application method for walls, ceilings, floors, cabinets, countertops, trim, and stairways. This book is particularly useful for its intended audience of interior designers, students, and building owners who need an introductory text on building interiors. For those seeking technical and how-to information, a list of professional associations and a bibliography are included.

Includes appendices on paints and coatings, composite panels, fire and safety codes, and sound reduction, plus a list of trade and professional associations. Spiral wire binding. Annotation c.
