This book should be of particular interest to homeowners who want to attempt major remodeling jobs rather than to go the contractor route. It may also be useful for those who want to go into construction part-time as a small business. It is intended to serve as a handbook or reference to be consulted by the builder when faced with a problem outside their sphere of experience.
The Visual Handbook of Building and Remodeling by Charlie Wing attempts to cover all major areas of home remodeling from dealing with the site of construction to finding and properly installing insulation.
Plumbing can be complicated and frustrating work for people who have never attempted to work with piping before.
