More About Casa Construction, Exterior by Michael Gary Devloo
 
 
 
Overview
Casa Construction aims to teach people in the construction industry the English or Spanish they need to better communicate, and better their construction knowledge. More than an English-Spanish dictionary of construction terms, Casa Construction is a guidebook to understanding residential construction concepts in both English and Spanish. It can be used as both a construction reference manual and a language learning tool. This first volume Casa Construction, Exterior highlights all exterior construction trades involved in home building construction. Construction concepts and processes are explained from the critical planning stages through exterior finish work. The book concludes with important chapters on construction management and construction safety. The book is divided into chapters by construction trades or topics which follow the order of a normal home-building project. Left side pages are written in English while the corresponding right side pages give a direct translation in Spanish. The reader can reference a particular process, task, or word in either English or Spanish and get a clear understanding of the concept in their own language. The reader can then easily view an explanation of the same concept in the unknown language on the page beside it. With this reference format of side-by-side English and Spanish the reader can relate word to word and paragraph to paragraph for each concept explained. Key words, definitions, and useful phrases are provided in each chapter for a quick language learning reference. Photos and diagrams are used to give visual explanations. Web references are included in the text to provide a starting point for additional research on more complex topics. For more information on using this first-of-its-kind construction reference manual, as well as information on additional products, and free online resources, see Casa Construction online at: www.casaconstructionbook.com
