Written in simple terms with an emphasis on discipline nomenclature, professionalism, and articulation of content, Carpentry
is among the first texts to integrate a full set of building plans with the 2015 International Code Council building standards, and the latest carpentry text built around the ideals of modern and sustainable construction methods. Fully conceived, designed, and written to help develop the first generation of carpenters and builders of tomorrow’s highly efficient green homes, the book is based on building science and the latest materials and techniques. The mathematics, theory, practice, techniques, and applications of carpentry are interwoven within a larger discussion of sustainability, resource and labor efficiencies, indoor air quality, and environmental impact. The book develops building skills that go beyond technique by explaining purpose, code compliance, structure requirements, and introducing plan reading spatial skills.
