Simple & Straightforward for the novice
on 28 May 2013
I think this is a very good starter book for novices to look at if they are thinking of building or if you simply want to know all the necessary and important basic points so that you're not clueless as to what your builder is doing! It describes simply & doesn't overwhelm even when it is technical. I think the costing addendums are brilliant and good prompts for you to use as a template on any size of project. I would then graduate from this book to look at other building books that are more in-depth or talk about latest technologies.
