House Building Manual 7th Edition

Building a house is a complex and skilled job, involving a great variety of details and materials put together by many different trades to create a finished house.

HomeBond first produced its House Building Manual in 1993 and people involved in the house building industry will be aware of the extent to which it has been consulted. The 7th edition of the House Building Manual has now been published and updated, and goes right through all the building work from foundations to chimney pot.

This manual is an essential reference for those who are designing and/or certifying house construction, for the builder or developer and the foreman and craftsman on site.

This edition has been updated to reflect recent revisions to regulations, guidance and standards including changes to Technical Guidance Document L – Conservation of Fuel and Energy.

The 7th edition manual has over 550 pages, and more than 1000 drawings and charts, and 200 colour photographs that detail the construction of a house, including:
