The first of four volumes, the theme of this book is the pursuit of excellence...the quest for information that will help everyone working in the housing industry to draw closer to the ideal of perfection in design and construction...increasing confidence, competence, and performance.
The 400 illustrations in this book, with the bare minimum of required descriptive text, provides the reader with a quick yet exhaustive boost up a level into the savvy information database of identifying and preventing housing design and construction "bugs."
This Volume 1 represents 18 years of field research working as a construction superintendent, bank construction inspector, and project manager.
Because every topic is illustrated, builders, architects, engineers, and interior designers can translate selected drawings into details on the plans, insert the information into the specifications or construction notes on the plans, and include these topics as items on construction checklists.
