This is an awesome guide to DIY stuff around your house 6 Aug. 2004
By Shabbir SZ - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I loved this book. I did not know anything about how to fix things around the house and what tools to use etc. This book helped a lot in understanding types of jobs, what tools to use, time and process and materials required.

I would recommend this to anyone who wants to get his hands dirty doing some work around the house and dont know where to start.

MUST HAVE 10 Nov. 2010
By River - Published on
Format: Turtleback Verified Purchase
This was a gift to us from my father-in-law after we bought our home almost six years ago. We've used this guide to design and execute such projects as refinishing walls, paver patios, small masonry projects, basic electrical work, insulation installation, tile floor installation, and much more - and many sections (plumbing) we have yet to use. This is our first reference and first go-to-guide for any and all home improvement projects and has become our absolute MUST gift for a first-time home owner.
page turner 21 July 2013

perfect reference for the low-budget homeowner, tinkerer, do-it-yourselfer, gadgeteer, amateur carpenter -- particularly when a clean, well-organized and accurate explainer is better at hand than several clicks away. i got this manual for each of my two newly-purchased-home-fixer-upper sons who each lifted his nose from a laptop before snorting doubts. yet, when calls for advice along a suburban fence line or inside a chicken coop do-over have come, this is where they found their answers when mr. google couldn't sort them out. plus, a damp cloth cleans chicken poop off a page easier than a keyboard.
This is a good book to have 31 Oct. 2013

I get that you can find anything online today, but this is a good book to have. There is a lot of general knowledge and it is nice just to go through and get ideas in planing your next home improvement projects (which I tend to have a lot of). It has become more of a coffee table book in our new home, but not to be under estimated for it does come in handy. Better than some of the others I have seen.
Handy Guide to Home Repair 21 Dec. 2013

I found this book a couple of years ago and thought it was really cool. I finally remembered about it and when I found it on Amazon I had to have it. It has many, many, great tips for how to do general repairs on things around the house. Great buy for anyone who wants to keep expensive repairmen out of their homes.
