Single-family house building manual

Richard Sendi and Boštjan Cotič

Publisher: Tehniška založba SlovenijeLjubljana 2007 - 2007


This handbook is intended for all those contemplating building or intending to participate in any way in the construction of a single-family house. It provides extensive information on the entire process, from thinking about building to the actual building activity. It consists of six main chapters identifying all the major aspects that need to be taken into consideration before deciding to build and the procedure that must be followed once the decision to build has been taken. It starts off with the definition of a “self-builder” and their role in society. This is followed by a presentation of the most important aspects including: planning, choice of location, financing, construction, use and maintenance of the house. A glossary of the important and common professional terms is also included at the end of the handbook.
