When Rob Thallon's Graphic Guide to Frame Construction was first published, it quickly became the indispensable guide to framing a house. Now Thallon offers Graphic Guide to Interior Details, the essential second volume that picks up where the first one leaves off; it helps you take the finished frame into a completed structure. Inside, you will find relevant information about virtually every material involved in interior construction - common and uncommon, residential and commercial - so you can compare key factors and make the best decisions for your projects. Hundreds of meticulous drawings (easily incorporated into architectural plans) detail how all these materials connect to the structure of a building and how they meet other materials. Every aspect of interior construction is covered, from walls and ceilings to floors, cabinets, countertops, trim and stairs. You'll get information about everything from drywall and resilient flooring to raised paneling and colored concrete, from banisters and handrails to door trim and cabinet hardware.

Library Journal Review

Through line drawings and text, Thallon (Graphic Guide to Frame Construction, Taunton, 1991) explains the installation of interior materials to the structural shell of a building. Each chapter describes the various materials that can be used and the application method for walls, ceilings, floors, cabinets, countertops, trim, and stairways. This book is particularly useful for its intended audience of interior designers, students, and building owners who need an introductory text on building interiors. For those seeking technical and how-to information, a list of professional associations and a bibliography are included. (c) Copyright 2010.
