Very Illustrative, July 17, 2000
Reviewer: A reader from Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts USA
This is a good book for anybody looking to uncover the mystery of framing and roof building. The illustrations are good and the text is very informative. The section on roof building is well thought out. Excellent reference for a begining/intermediate contractor or a do-it-yourselfer.

Very Informative Book!, February 8, 2000
Reviewer: Mark Oveson from Louisville, Colorado
This book is an extremely well-written introduction to house framing. Each chapter is full of great, color illustrations and easy-to-follow instructions. The text is clear and concise.

I bought this book before building a redwood-framed greenhouse, and the information it provided was critical to my success. Then I bought one for my brother. I'd recommend it to anyone interested in building a greenhouse, shop, add-on room, or similar project.

Thanks to the publisher! All do-it-yourself books should read like this one!
