If you work in the building trade, this is a pretty good reference book. I wouldn't recommend it to a novice, but it does give some instruction on various methods. I use it when there is a question of strength, common usage or as a refresher on things I don't do often.

Strength is shown in multiple tables for spans, load weights & usage. For instance, over a 10 foot span, can I get by with 2x6 joists, 24" on center, if I use bridging? This book will supply various tables showing me live &
This mainly would serve as a textbook for a trade school, the information was in depth and extensive but before looking for it be aware that literally everything explained here is also in wikihow
Excellent reference book for construction
