No matter the task, the more than 600 pages of this fix-it-up encyclopedia provide a wealth of knowledge and photos and drawings that show you how to do everything. Do it yourself, or use the information to judge the value and quality of professional work. Throughout, there's an emphasis on the selection of materials for particular jobs, so you can choose the best ones; on the correct operation of tools; on ways to meet any building codes. Go deep inside the workings of plumbing, including the potable water system, the hot water main, and more. Quickly figure out if you can add to an existing electrical circuit, plus how to replace circuits and repair wiring. Renovate interior walls and ceilings, install home security, improve temperature control, take a furniture workshop, and so much more!
