so good I bought the book,
This review is from: The Complete Idiot's Guide to Building Your Own Home, 3rd Edition (Paperback)
My wife and I are working through a construction company to build a new home. This book provided such great, specific suggestions, we are buying the book as opposed to borrowing from the library.
If you want to pick up a hammer and nails and build your own house, this won't get you there. But if you want to negotiate specific terms w/ your construction firm and build a house economically, the book is great help.
