A Comprehensive Guide for Australian Owner Builders
By George Wilkie & Stuart Arden
Just as the title suggests, this book is a comprehensive guide for anyone building a house in Australia. It provides a brief history on domestic architecture in Australia and of the building materials and construction methods that continue to be used. Consultants, authorities, design, costing, tendering and contracts are also explained before discussing the construction process, from the site through to completion. Each stage, trade and method of construction (often various options are presented) are clearly explained and illustrated. This is a great reference book for anyone building their own home or wanting to understand more about what is involved.
