Absolutely a *must* for the self housbuilder.
on 4 March 2015
As it says, the "Bible" for self builders. It won't give you absolutely everything you need to build a house if your actually doing the work of course, (for that you need more technical books in each area obviously), but this book is perfect for an overview of the process, build options both material and method wise, heating methods, services and utilities, planning, managing the project, pitfalls and joys of self building. It really is a "must" if you plan to self build. I'd say buy this *as soon* as you start thinking about building your own house and read it cover to cover. Written in easy to follow language and in logical chunks, it answers questions you hadn't even thought of... but would have! Recommended.
