Step 1 of the exercise, first sentence:
The instruction omits mention of the file used for the exercise.
The sentence should read: "Open the Source_House_Walls_Start.rvt file and select the Wall tool from the Basics tab."
Step 3, the first sentence, beginning "In the Options bar..." should read:
"In the Options bar, set Height to Level 2 and the Loc Line to Wall Centerline."

Step 11: delete the existing sentence.
Replace with the following text: "Now that the roof is completed, look at the model in a 3D view. As you can see, you can quickly make a roof with a complex outline. However, for our house, we want to simply the roof form. Select the roof you just created and hit the Edit button in the Options Bar. By trimming the roof boundary lines simplify the roof shape into a large rectangle shown in Figure 4.69 below. At this time, don't worry about the areas we have not covered with a roof, we will add some additional roof forms later in this chapter."
Step 12: the first sentence should read
"Select the roof and in the Type Selector, change the roof type from 12" Generic to a Metal Roof type."
Step 3 in the instructions should read:
"When you have a closed loop of lines, press Finish Sketch."
