Graphic Guide to Interior Details: For Builders and Designersby Rob Thallon
Synopses & Reviews
When Rob Thallon's Graphic Guide to Frame Construction was first published, it quickly became the indispensable guide to framing a house. Now Thallon offers Graphic Guide to Interior Details, the essential second volume that picks up where the first one leaves off; it helps you take the finished frame into a completed structure. Inside, you will find relevant information about virtually every material involved in interior construction - common and uncommon, residential and commercial - so you can compare key factors and make the best decisions for your projects. Hundreds of meticulous drawings (easily incorporated into architectural plans) detail how all these materials connect to the structure of a building and how they meet other materials. Every aspect of interior construction is covered, from walls and ceilings to floors, cabinets, countertops, trim and stairs. You'll get information about everything from drywall and resilient flooring to raised paneling and colored concrete, from banisters and handrails to door trim and cabinet hardware.
