Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 007049729X, Paperback)

Residential building expressions--standard and slang construction terms--advanced-level terminology--trade shortcuts--shop talk. Whenever you're stumped by unfamiliar building jargon, just turn to The Illustrated Dictionary of Building Terms by Tom Philbin. Arranged in an easy-to-use, alphabetical format, this versatile, richly illustrated resource does much more than give you instant definitions of trade terms like ``mud job,'' ``screwed off'' and ``wolves in the walls.'' It also helps you perform hassle-free metric conversions--determine appropriate screw sizes--choose molding types--find low-cost alternatives to traditional lumber--discover the latest building methods--and more.
