Book Description

Pat Guthrie, author of The Architect's Portable Handbook, now turns his attention to interior design. Like its predecessor, the book is organized in CSI MasterFormat, modified for the interior design profession. It covers initial planning and estimating through design and construction/installation. Included are materials and specifications checklists, quick references to applicable codes and standards, design data, and typical details. Examples show applications of techniques and procedures. This invaluable reference, like all titles in the Portable Handbook series, provides "the 20% of information needed 80% of the time."

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent resource! 21 Sep 2000
By "catherinems" - Published on Amazon.com
This book is an excellent resource for my entire class of graduate students. It has a wealth of information, and is easy to take along to sites, classes, etc. There are even pages for you to take notes on. It is organized well and easy to follow. You won't find everything you ever needed to know (and didn't need to know), but you will find essential and most-used codes guidelines and dimensions for interior space.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interior Designer's Portable Handbook 6 Jan 2009
By Asia - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was available at my schools library so I already new what it consisted of. The book, although small for its price, is very valuable for the inexperienced designer, well as a quick reference for general design information and codes. Its smaller size means I can take it to jobsites too.
