How to achieve a perfect finish

You already know that the building isn't finished just because the walls are up and the roof is on. Interior details--flooring, stairs, trimwork, cabinets, fireplaces, and painting--finish the project and give it character. This guide clearly explains each step, discusses the tools involved, and even examines insulation, termite protection, maintenance, and how to set up a workshop that makes it all easier.
* Determine coverage rates for various paints and make the selection that fits your project
* Explore the advantages of paint spray guns and high-pressure water treatments
* Analyze types of insulation and choose one that provides peak efficiency
* Learn the pros and cons of different types of chimneys and prefabricated fireplaces
* Design and plan a workshop with the equipment and machinery you'll need for finishing
* Take advantage of an extensive glossary of carpentry and building terms
