    To quote one of my teenagers, this is an “AWESOME” book. 
As an architect I tend to think I know all this …. however the concise presentation along with the photos (always very important) as well as the ‘trick of the trade’ will make this my ‘go to source’ as from now!!
Thank you very much!

    BAie dankie. Ek is al 40 jaar in die boulyn en is as ‘n meester vakman geregistreer en ook mede-eienaar van ‘n Tekendiens in Pretoria. As Geregistreerde Senior Argiteks Tegnoloog “gryp” ek enige goeie DIY boek op en verslind werkbare idees. Ek glo dat enige hulp aan die “huiseienaar” baie welkom is. Baie dankie

    I have found this book most informative. As a House Inspector I have used this on occasion as a reference to verify one or two ‘issues’ that I have uncovered during an inspection. I also do a fair amount of my own DIY so it is also useful when tackling areas not previously dealt with.
