Great book. Full of interesting details and gives a full history of housing in the UK. This is demonstrated by changing details such as cavity wall construction and building regulations updates. A must have book for all graduates. Perfect for housing details for quick design reference. Good for exploring alternative approaches to details.

I'm a property developer and use this book frequently as a source of information or training newly hired labourers. Very easy to read, no useless filler, straight to the point. It's a text book style, not a persons viewpoint which is exactly what it should be. Simple to understand complex material. Great book

Clearly explains all aspects with lots of colour photos and diagrams. Covers both current and historical (mostly going back to the sixties) methods of construction. Really useful in construction, repair and when considering a house purchase (to understand what you're buying!).

The content itself is good but in the kindle version there are loads of typo's and the annotations to some images are barely readable.

Good book, covers lots of details etc. As with any book... make sure you look at the latest product and building regulation information as well....

Bought for my son who was delighted with this book, a comprehensive guide for his occupation as site manager on housing development.

I'm a landlord and this book is a brilliant foundation to better understand how houses are put together.
