Book Description:

While new construction has slowed to a crawl and upgrading to a bigger house is no longer a sure thing, more and more homeowners are choosing to remodel. They’re actively looking for information on how to make their current home a better place to live. This collection of 36 articles from the experts at Fine Homebuilding, the most respected residential construction magazine in the country, lays out detailed information on every stage of remodeling—from planning and design to building and installation, upgrades, finishing, and clean-up. Coverage includes interior and exterior design and building strategies, as well as information on additions and tips for living comfortably through a remodel. This complete guide, which includes 300 color photographs, 75 drawings, practical sidebars, and case studies, is a one-stop reference.

Reviews

Most “how to” or “do it yourself” books I have read through make me cringe with incorrect information or bad product advice. This book is NOT to be included in this category. Thoughtfully laid out with photos, easy to read descriptions and plans make this book a must have for anyone thinking of tackling their own project or hiring someone else.  The coherence of the book offers a “big-picture” view without skimping on the details. And it’s obvious that this information came from people who actually know what they’re talking about.  My Nephew has recently bought his first home and has asked for tools for Christmas. I can’t think of a better tool than this book, (And it’s far less dangerous than anything with a chord attached).
