Summary
Foundation work is not glamorous. But it is the work upon which all other concrete rests, so a good foundation is critical to every home. No source of knowledge on foundations and concrete work is better respected or more widely followed than that provided by the experts at Fine Homebuilding magazine. Completely updated, Foundations & Concrete Work distills decades of hands-on, builder-tested methods and techniques as the finest builders in the country pass on their hard-won trade secrets for better construction.--COVER
