There’s no substitute for experience, but if you don’t have a clue where to start with a construction project, you can buy one: JLC’s Tips and Techniques book. JLC’s experienced construction gurus who give you the low down on handling tricky situations in practical, no nonsense formats.
The guys at JLC packed in topics ranging from technical questions about wood I-joist squash blocks to UV blockers on finishes for interior trim and give the best ways around the typical hang-ups that plague virtually any project.
This book isn’t a replacement for first hand knowledge, but it could easily mean the difference between a pro-looking job and a horror story of time, materials and limited results.
