I'm building a small beach house. Could anyone recommend a current (up to date on technologies like pex plumbing tubing, etc.) book that covers all aspects of home construction in a simple step by step format. Lots of pictures would also help, I'm a visual learner.
I can't recommend any specific books, but the large home improvement outlets usually has a rack in the front of the store, and one back near the lumber section, that have quite a variety of DIY topics.
Either go with existing prints or hire an architect, unless this is so far out in the sticks that obtaining a permit and having to follow building codes doesn't matter.
Thanks putnameco fro recommending so may books. I am sure they will help well and I will also go through them. I enjoy reading and adding a few of these to my collection will help. RTR you could also search for online forums where people have done this kind of work. Try and get in touch with them and a practical experience like that can really help.
