The Complete Guide to Contracting Your Home.

The Complete Guide to Contracting Your Home, Kent Lester and Dave McGuerty (Betterway Publications, Inc., White Hall, Va., 1986; $18.95). Subtitled "A Step-by-Step Method for Managing Home Construction," this 279-page volume is a comprehensive guide to new building. A preface describes day-to-day issues such as getting materials to the site and scheduling and supervising subcontractors. The heart of the book, Project Management, features 27 chapters, each covering a basic trade from excavation and electrical to drywall and custom cabinetry. The book concludes with a glossary of construction terms and scores of reproducible forms- materials- and labor-estimating outlines, and sample contracts and purchase orders.
