Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis

The success or failure of a building project is often decided before the first nail is driven. Good habits of measuring and marking and a thorough understanding of the way the job should be laid out not only ensure high quality but also save materials and increase productivity.

In this comprehensive reference, John Carroll explains ways to produce precise, correct layouts for everything from the foundation to the roof covering. His forte is his clarity. He breaks down the process into manageable parts and takes you methodically through such daunting tasks as the layouts of stairs and roof rafters.
Amazon.com Review
The common and sensible dictum among carpenters--"Measure twice, cut once"--is only the beginning for Carroll, who manages to take some very complex information and distill it into readable and understandable form. There are chapters devoted to laying out foundations, frames, roofs, stairs, masonry units, and finishing materials, and many little-known tricks of the trade and shortcuts. Carroll covers all the basics of tools and techniques, shows how to measure larger dimensions on projects while working alone, and shows that one needn't be a master mathematician to assure accuracy in projects, nor use space-age, high-tech equipment to achieve near-perfect results in a building project. From the simplest how-to project for a home handyperson to constructing an entire house, proper, accurate measurements are the very foundation of a successful result. Using common sense and care in measuring can save time, materials, and money on any home repair or construction plan. This is the book to tell you everything you need to know before you get started. --Mark A. Hetts
