This book is hands down the greatest reference that I have ever come across, when it comes to home building. There is absolutely no other product on the market that will be more essential to your home building success. Mr. Rentz is truly a master of his craft and luckily for everyone, he has given us a step by step guide to home building that is created from years and years of dedicated engineering experience. I highly advise everyone to buy this book to help you with your home building needs. It is like paying to have a master craftsman and engineer at your immediate disposal throughout any project. I assure you, you will NOT be disappointed!

This book is great - an easy read with dry humor throughout that makes you laugh out loud when you "get the joke". The information/instruction takes the mystery out of home building and makes you wonder what all the fuss is about when you hear the horror stories of someone's building experience. All they needed to do was read this book first. Keep your dream home from being a nightmare. Mrs. Marty Johnson
