Full Description


Master builder Larry Haun teams up with Habitat For Humanity, the world's leading community homebuilding organisation, to bring you this complete, step-by-step guide to building a house. This is both a skill-building book which illustrates how anyone can actually build a house, and also one which focuses on efficiency, quality and environmental concerns. It is ideal for beginner builders, yet it contains indepth information that will benefit all skill levels of builders. The information is presented in a clear authoritative manner, yet friendly and accessible in tone. The step-by-step method of instruction includes tips that come from the author's many years of experience. * Habitat For Humanity is an international charity which brings families and communities in need together with volunteers and resources to build decent and affordable homes. Since 1976, Habitat has built more than 120,000 houses in over 80 countries. This is the only book on the market to bear their name. * Illustrated in full colour: the colour photographs were specially taken in situ as the 'project house' for the book was blitz-built in just three weeks.
