This is probably the best home improvement book. I constantly refer to it when working on projects at home. It doesn't contain project plans, but it contains a lot of information on how to do improvements and maintenance. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0688085121, Hardcover)

This home maintenance book is filled with practical advice on how to save money, time, and aggravation on everything from plumbing to color schemes. More than 200 subjects are covered, richly supplemented with over 3,000 color photographs, diagrams, and tables. Illustrated step-by-step directions clearly and precisely walk you through each task. A unique system of cross-referencing - color-coded pages, references to related topics on every page - allows you to explore all facets of a subject and to make projects as simple or complex as you choose. A special section unravels the mysteries of tools, specific skills, and materials, and an extensive glossary and index mean no question has to go unanswered.

This book is for all those who want to increase the value of home or apartment, save on costly repairs, and have the satisfaction of doing a job themselves. No home can afford to be without it.
