As a former building contractor, I can say that this book offers builders of all levels drawing views that blueprints sometimes do not even afford. There are detailed views of alternative approaches for same-type applications that cover most problems encountered during a building or remodeling project. I initially bought this book as a refresher in anticipation of a planned project on my own home, but it has turned out to be one of the best reference books in my library.

This book will become a staple in your library. It will help work through just about any detail. Don't waste your money on Kaffee Kang's version of this book unless your are a complete novice in the field.

I bought this book for my son, who writes as follows:

This book is written for an American readership where this type of construction has been the norm for over 150 years and accounts for 90% of all new buildings. It describes itself as the 'standard guide' to light wood framing and it is 'found in the libraries' of 'architects, contractors, owner-builders and students'. Its 5 chapters (Foundations, Floors, Walls, Roofs, Stairs) spread over 230 pages are extensively illustrated with clearly annotated line drawings and there is a wealth of detail about variations in construction techniques. It is pitched at quite a high level and is not aimed at the home handy man.

A good book but written by an american for the U.S. market. Interesting but lots of things not relevant or just plain different from the U.K. building regs guidelines.

Useful overview on the design of timber frame buildings. Bear in mind this is a US book and all dimensions and terminology is in imperial and American (also spelt wrong!!)
