Finishing a House: A Complete Guide from Installing Insulation to Running Trim
Roe Osborn's first book, Framing a House, tackled the complex art of house framing. Now, in this follow-up volume Finishing a House, he lays out all the steps and instruction required to complete the inside. The timing of each step is critical, and it's important to understand what needs to be done first. Whether finishing one room or the whole house, this highly illustrated reference demystifies the process and follows a logical progression from installing insulation and drywall to hanging cabinets and doors to putting down floors and running trim.
Each chapter begins with the question: Should I tackle this step myself? The pros and cons of hiring someone are then discussed. Applicable both for new construction and remodels and with 400 photographs and 20 drawings, this book shows DIYers how to make a house their own.
