With over 1,700 gorgeous, crystal-clear illustrations, your DIY home improvement projects have never been more straightforward. A decade ago, the original Complete Photo Guide to Home Improvement was lauded by do-it-yourselfers as an unrivaled resource in independent home renovation. Now, for the first time outside of the big-box building centers, it is available in a convenient, compact new size of 6.5 by 8.5—the perfect fit for your toolbox. Finally, a home improvement how-to guide that’s equally at home on the job site as it is on your bookshelf. Three simple words can make your dreams of a better home come true at any time and in any economy: do it yourself. Armed with good information, some basic skills, and a can-do attitude, you’ll find that you can upgrade, renovate, or improve upon any room in your house—all without calling in an expensive professional. The Complete Photo Guide to Home Improvement is a comprehensive bible of remodeling information, focusing on the significant projects that help homeowners add real value to their homes while bettering their lifestyles. This new, compact edition contains beautiful step-by-step photos and foolproof instructions for each of the more than 200 home remodeling projects found in the original large-format book. Perhaps best of all, along with the size, we have also reduced the price to a bargain $24.99.

In which denim-clad men and work-booted, pony-tailed, mom-jean-wearing women measure, fix, and construct various aspects of homes. Coverage of the entire home, from attic to basement, are illustrated well enough to make a grown man drool. From installing a new vanity to a sleeper floor in the basement, this offers enough instruction to step you through the major operations of each project, but watch out--it does not deal with covering everything that can (and will) go wrong or be freaky with your miserable excuse for a house. From installing metal ceilings to ceramic tile to three ways (three way switches, you filthy-minded galoot!), it's all here. Other topics to pique your dude radar: installing wallboard. Bullnose edging. Installing an undersink garbage disposal. It might as well be a picture of Jessica Simpson--you can't look away, can you? - "Library Journal, April 1, 2010"
