This book has great coverage of framing a house while still being accessible to the beginner. It includes a chapter on basic stair installation that is very detailed. it concludes with a chapter on finish work including doors, windows, siding, and trim. The bulk of the book is dedicated to framing. He does not get into finish work in much detail. Overall a fantastic book that greatly increased my understanding of carpentry and what goes into building a house.
