Authors Mark R. Miller, Rex Miller, and Glenn E. Baker have a proven record in easy-to-follow construction guides. Their Carpentry & Construction has been in print for more than 25 years and may be the most popular home building guide ever! One online reviewer said, "It has given me the confidence to build my own house, even though I can't swing a hammer without hitting my thumb." The authors know how to teach. All have taught construction, management, and technical skills at the university level for many years.
