Building and DIY author Peters (Sheds and Garages) turns his expertise to different house systems in these compact little handbooks, both chock-full of pictures and illustrations and aimed at the general homeowner. Each is organized by house system basics, projects, and troubleshooting. Peters's explanation of the house systems is excellent--"electrical" goes into, e.g., currents, circuitry, and conduits while "plumbing" covers, e.g., water supply, piping, and fixtures. Electrical projects include installing a ceiling fan and a thermostat and fixing a light. Plumbing projects address replacing a faucet, installing a toilet, and dealing with clogs. As is typical with this author, everything is carefully explained in understandable language for the layperson. While neither of these manuals is meant to be exhaustive (indeed, the repairs addressed are quite general), each offers exceptional coverage. Recommended for public libraries.
