Building a home is never easy, but it is within the capabilities of anyone with an understanding of basic carpentry tools and techniques. Using step-by-step illustrations and procedures, this manual details phases in the construction of a platform or balloon framed house. After a discussion of site preparation and layout, Duncan steers readers all the way from choosing and designing a foundation to installing cabinetry, staircases, fireplaces, porches and other finishing touches. Special topics of interest include foundation drainage, prevention of insect damage, second floor construction, door and window installation, skylights, sound control, ventilation and more. This book offers time and money-saving advice and emphasizes the latest standards for home safety and energy efficiency.
