Home extension due,
This review is from: Home Extensions: Planning, Managing and Completing Your Extension (Hardcover)
I bought this because I am about to embark on a large extension & want to remind myself of building terminology & practices. It was also to give my wife an insight into building terms.
Yes the book is useful but as I was in the building trade a few years ago (15) I do remember a lot of this. This book would be useful to someone with little or no knowledge of building. But it does not tell you everything you will need to know.
I found it did not go into enough detail in some areas like plumbing, heating controls etc. House design is changing & home automation is becomming more common as is underfloor heating.
It is very hard nowadays to get a book that covers all aspects. This book was helpful to myself.
