PDF The Apple Corps Guide to the Well-Built House

Book description

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this. Jim Locke is not only an excellent builder, as I learned in Tracy Kidder's House, but a great writer as well. He writes in a clear and conversational manner, giving lots of good advice mixed with humor and self-deprecating anecdotes. The only reason I didn't give this five stars is that it was written in the late 1980s, and there have been quite a few changes in building practice since then, so some of what he recommends has become obsolete. Good craftsmanship never becomes outdated, though, and that's Locke's main goal. Well worth your time, though take a look at some recent copies of Fine Homebuilding or Journal of Light Construction for what you can expect when it comes to modern insulation, siding, trim, and even a few framing details.
