Basic Construction And Carpentry Techniques Home


Basic carpentry skills are necessary to be able to complete home renovation, home building and other construction projects. A carpenter or home renovator needs to be able to layout a building site; determine the elevations of a site excavation, and concrete footing and other components; build concrete footing and wall forms; frame and sheath floors, walls and roofs; and build stairs. This site provides that information and a way to incorporate the perfect rectangle, the Golden Section, into building projects.  Basic construction and carpentry links are listed below.
