Here's everything you need to construct the home of your dreams!

Use Residential Framing: A Homebuilder's Construction Guide as your guide to becoming your own general contractor, or use this massive source to keep up with what's going on if you hire workmen to do the job. Every stage of construction receives careful, clear instructions. Whether it's the foundation, walls, floors, windows, doors or roof, author William Spence fully explains everything - even interior and exterior finishing. Hundreds of photos, diagrams and illustrations cover every step:

  • framing materials
  • framing systems
  • floor framing
  • wall and partition framing
  • ceiling and roof
  • post, plank and beam construction
This thorough work also includes complete details for common rafters, hip and valley rafters, and dormers, as well as shed, flat, gambrel and mansard roofs. A variety of door and window styles is offered, as is your choice of exteriors, including solid wood, hardboard, plywood, wood shingles, aluminum siding, vinyl and masonry.

You also get special tips on interior trims, stairs, porches and decks. There's even a detailed section on the power tools you'll need, how to set up your own on-site shop, and how to be your own full-time safety supervisor.
