Reviews - What do our customers think?
A timeless reference  Feb 7, 2008
Even if you're not building homes for Habitat for Humanity, the processes, hints and reference material from this book will help you build your own, add on or simply unravel the confusion of house building. I DO work for Habitat for Humanity and this book has been by my side for 8 of my 15 builds. It's one of the three references that I recommend to any of my new project leads. It's geared for the inexperienced volunteer not the professional. Don't build a home without it.
Highly recommend  Jan 10, 2008
As a shop teacher I looked forward to receiving this book both from a practical sense, but also from a academic sense.

You could practically build or do a remodel of an existing home with this book. Nice step-by-step processes and with good supporting pictures.

There is information for the season contractor, builder as well as superb information for a 1st timer.

With some basic building and tool knowledge a person could build a simple building or at the least be informed as to how to guide others in the process.

Highly recommend
HFH How to build a house   Mar 18, 2007
Excellent book to help beginners understand to 'How Tos" of house building.
Habitat for Humanity: How to Build a House  Jan 10, 2007
This soft-covered manual provides a remarkably concise overview of the elements of home building from A to Z. I have been a weekly construction volunteer with Habitat for 5 1/2 years, so this book is particularly appropriate and useful. Don't expect any coverage of plumbing or electrical work, but the remaining trades are very well done. Foundations, floor systems, walls and roofs are all covered, explained well, and accompanied by good pictures. For non-Habitat purposes, there are ample applications that can benefit from this book. These would include shed construction, decks, door and sindow installations, etc. There are many other books that deal directly with projects such as decks, but this text is definitely helpful as an overview of home construction.
A Complete Novice's Perspective  Jul 6, 2006
I am a complete novice and therefore I have looked at many books. Three things stood out about this book that I did not see anywhere else:
1. It has a cookbook approach. After looking at other books I was not completely clear when in time to do what task. This book arranges all the tasks in the chronological order. That facilitated for grasping the whole process mentally before beginning to build.
2. This book is exceptionally lucid, it is written in an unhurried language. The author has a gift for explanation.
3. Finally, this book is inspirational. It is more than a house building it aims to teach - it teaches building a home as a small step toward betterment of the world.
