Being able to do common building chores alone makes life easier (and safer!) for all kinds of builders, not just self-employed contractors. ìWeekend warriors can do a project without lining up the neighbors or in-laws. The organization of the chapters follows the schedule of a typical residential building project, but the discussion is not meant to be comprehensive. Instead of step-by-step instructions for a specific project, tasks are singled out which may be difficult to do alone and the approach is explained. Here are more than 50 innovative tips and techniques. You'll learn how to handle nearly every aspect of home construction alone, from foundation layout to raising walls to building decks. Most are easy tricks but a few take some time to learn. A very important book and a hot seller! .
