This is the text book of carpentry and framing. We have been carrying this book since 1976 when we opened the bookstore and watched its revisions. It covers everything from building material description, safety tips, hand tools, power tools, site layout, plan creation/reading, foundations, floor framing, wall and ceiling framing, roof framing, roofing, siding, and much more. If we had a text book for our Design Build Class this book would certainly be a contender!
