Description: This is a revision of the definitive text on home building by bestselling authors Edward Allen and Rob Thallon. It features the latest developments in the materials and methods of house construction, including energy efficiency, and a new chapter on small, multi-family apartment buildings. Organized in a logical, easy-to-follow format, it covers codes, costs, and management procedures, discusses building materials, and explores basic building systems. Profusely illustrated with over 1,250 drawings and photographs, this book includes new photorealistic illustrations that bring the text to life.
