4.0 out of 5 stars It helped me..., 20 Dec 2002
This review is from: Manual of First and Second Fixing Carpentry (Paperback)
Firstly - I like this book. Secondly - How-to books, are about getting you from where you are, to where you want to be. For me, this book does exactly that, but I guess it depends where you are! The index at the back is logical, and that is a real plus. I needed to do these jobs for real, and this book showed me how. The one thing I am still not sure of, is exactly what first and second fix are. From the perspective of a keen DIY'er.

First fix is generaly considered to be work done prior to wet trades (plastering), and second fix is the work following. so 1st fix would be construction carpentry - fitting joists, roof construction, laying sub-floors, installing windows, building partition walls etc... 2nd fix would be finish trim work - skirting, architrave, finish flooring, coving, built-in wardrobes etc....
