I was looking for a book on framing and flipped through this quickly at a local big-box store and purchased it. I should have looked more closely. It is a just a collection of articles from a magazine that are about framing. While they go into great detail on a few chosen topics - they do not discuss framing soup to nuts as I would have expected from the title (or even the quick once-through). If you are interested in some advanced techniques, this might be a valuable resource, but if you want the basics - or at least something comprehensive - look elsewhere.

Although Amazon does not have any in stock at the moment, this book is readily available at your local bookseller. I got mine for the cover price of $17.95.

As with all issues in the Taunton's For Pros by Pros series, FRAMING: FLOORS, WALLS, AND CEILINGS is a collection of articles from Fine Homebuilding magazine. While not a comprehensive instruction manual, this book covers a wide range of topics of interest to the professional framing carpenter. Larry Haun explains time-saving techniques for cutting multiples and other time-saving techniques.

Aspiring young carpenters would do well to study this book and keep it on hand for occational reference. Framing contractors, the time and materials saved by well trained carpenters more than offsets the price of this book. (Especially the articles outlining efficient and accurate methods for laying out mudsills and framing floors).

I guess you have to buy the sequel to find out how to build the roof.
