practical guide to DIY home improvement

This book is very useful if you're thinking about an addition to your home and want to do some or all of the work yourself. It's heavy on pics that show step-by-step how to do things and addresses other aspects such as safety issues, environmentally sound home improvements, and possible problems with a foundation or leaking roof.

It does not go very far into any one or another style of home design, but plays it safe and neutral in that regard.

It also isn't pushing certain products, though it doesn't shy away from showing brand names in the photos, as they would normally appear in the context of a home building context.
