The go-to title for the UK’s army of selfbuilders and renovators, the Housebuilder’s Bible has been garnering fans for over twenty-five years. Originally self-published in 1994, Mark Brinkley’s handbook combines up-to-date trade prices, planning guidelines and building regulations with deep insights into how and why we chose to build the way we do and how we might do it better. Brinkley puts 40 years of experience to work to unlock the secrets of design and construction in a highly readable format. Key areas are highlighted with photos, graphics and tables and contents are fully indexed.

 

The Housebuilder’s Bible has sold over 175,000 copies, making it far and away the best-selling guidebook in its field. It is read by self-builders and home improvers, architects and contractors, surveyors and estate agents. Many now use it as their principle point of reference for their upcoming building projects.

Reader's Comments

I've been buying the updates to this book for years now. There's more useful and relevant information in this book than there was in my 3 years at university studying construction. Brilliant, casual writing style too.
Thank you for this fabulous book Mark! Who would have thought that reading about planning permissions, bricks and mortar, plumbing, electricity, key rate charges, and expense sheets could be so funny and entertaining.
It’s a brilliant book. I read it whilst sailing across the Atlantic and, by the time I arrived home, I had decided to knock down our house and rebuiId it. A complete change of plans.
