Baffled by the Building Regs? Confused by codes of practice? Mystified by materials and puzzled by planning permission? Then look no further!
This handy and affordable guide is a time-saver for both professionals and enthusiasts. The information is sensibly organised by building element rather than by regulation, so that you can quickly lay your hands on whatever you need to know from whichever document.
