Builders' go-anywhere answer book. When you're out on a job site and need answers to your code or technical questions, literature back at the office is no help. Builder's Portable Handbook, by August W. Domel, Jr., is a johnny-on-the-spot tool small enough (50 x 80) to travel along with you, yet big enough to pack all the help you need to avoid mistakes, code violations, and wasted time and money. It's loaded with vital information on materials, concrete...wood...masonry...and steel. You get soil, safety and load data...calculations...code requirements for residential and commercial buildings...and more, all organized in CSI MasterFormat. There's even plenty of note-taking space in this take-along treasure.
