Description

This is a comprehensive manual of design and building methods for owner-builders as well as professional builders and their clients.
In addition to presenting specific building techniques, the book explains the design principles and planning processes that underlie all good building, so that readers can develop their own exceptional designs…independently.
Among the many items covered in this tome:

  •     Designing small houses that seem big
  •     Estimating and controlling costs
  •     Incorporating ergonomics and accessibility
  •     Doing drawings and scale models
  •     Making contracts that work.

When a book is this good it’s difficult to explain just how important it is to your knowledge of how to build sensibly, how to draw plans simply, how to site your home to the site conditions and so much more. Sam Clark is a builder who has worked with owner-builders since the 1960’s. His previous books have helped thousands of people manage their building projects.
