Larry Haun has worked as a carpenter in southern California for four decades and has been a Habitat for Humanity volunteer since the 1980s.

Haun, an experienced carpenter and volunteer for Habitat for Humanity, leads readers through the basics of home construction. Scattered throughout are inspirational real-life stories of home recipients. A more exhaustive tome on house construction is R.J. DeCristoforo's Housebuilding: A Do-It-Yourself Guide. Still, this is an approachable handbook. Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
