Girls Who Build is the how-to book that celebrates the can-do attitude of dozens of fierce girls who know how to wield a hammer, fire up a saw, and build everything from a bookshelf to a playhouse. Filled with photographs of the girls and their work, this guide will inspire others to pick up power tools and learn that they are capable of anything. Carpenter Katie Hughes frequently found that she was the only woman on construction worksites. To change that, she began teaching classes to girls ages 8-14, showing them how to drill, saw, and weld. Her classes quickly became sold out summer camps and she founded her own non-profit, Girls Build. Girls Who Build features candid and arresting photographs of 45 girls showing off their power tools and can-do attitudes. Accompanying each girl is a profile interview where she speaks to her inspirations and favorite builds, plus tips for others starting out. Also included are building skills, techniques, and safety tips to teach girls -- and older beginners -- how to handle hammers, drills, and saws plus 15 do-it-herself building projects (from the featured girls themselves) such as picture frames, nightstands, playhouses, and more.

In an era of brash, expensive, provocative new buildings, a prominent critic argues that emotions—such as hope, power, sex, and our changing relationship to the idea of home—are the most powerful force behind architecture, yesterday and (especially) today. We are living in the most dramatic period in architectural history in more than half a century: a time when cityscapes are being redrawn on a yearly basis, architects are testing the very idea of what a building is, and whole cities are being invented overnight in exotic locales or here in the United States. Now, in a bold and wide-ranging new work, Rowan Moore—former director of the Architecture Foundation, now the architecture critic for The Observer—explores the reasons behind these changes in our built environment, and how they in turn are changing the way we live in the world. Taking as his starting point dramatic examples such as the High Line in New York City and the outrageous island experiment of Dubai, Moore then reaches far and wide: back in time to explore the Covent Garden brothels of eighteenth-century London and the fetishistic minimalism of Adolf Loos; across the world to assess a software magnate’s grandiose mansion in Atlanta and Daniel Libeskind’s failed design for the World Trade Center site; and finally to the deeply naturalistic work of Lina Bo Bardi, whom he celebrates as the most underrated architect of the modern era.

"I began building tiny houses back in 2009 when I built one for my mom. The house she was living in was starting to fall apart and become unlivable, so I knew I had to find her alternative housing. After researching various options I discovered the tiny house movement and realized that it was the perfect solution for her. A tiny house could be constructed to very high standards and still be affordable, plus it can be easily moved"--Author

The urge has found you daydreaming more than once. The urge to define, bend, shape, fabricate, invent, shove, break. To slide your leg over the seat you finally got back from the leather shop. To twist back the throttle grip you wrapped yourself. To lunge into the darkness of an open highway on a creation all your own. More than a motorcycle, this is about your identity. It's about building something as unique as you are. In The Build, Robert Hoekman Jr compiles insights from today's best builders to help you plot out your own beautiful beast. Loaded with photos, The Build features firsthand advice from the masters of moto design, including John Ryland (Classified Moto), Alan Stulberg (Revival Cycles), Jared Johnson (Holiday Customs), Jarrod DelPrado (DP Customs), and the legendary Max Hazan (Hazan Motorworks). You've seen what can be done. It's time to do it yourself. Get The Build.

The script is entitled Building Estimates and Rates Build Up .and aims at empowering Technical educators, Technical, Brigades and Community colleges students, Apprentices and individuals in the building profession with the necessary skill and knowledge. As an experienced professional in the building industry, quantity surveyor( building material estimator) and a former lecturer for technical colleges, I have realized that there is need to come up with a book that will help students, apprentices and individual builders to easily understand the subject of estimating and rates build up to enable them to apply the skill whenever they have projects. Currently, individual builders, apprentices, and students find it difficult to correctly and accurately estimate the quantities of materials required for proposed projects .Pricing is also a difficult task for most of them as they do not have an idea of how to build up rates. Presently our brigades and technical colleges do not have a relevant book to deal with Estimates. Building Estimates and Rates build up provides a solution to such a problem. The book provides a solution in that it brings together pure mathematics and practical estimation, to avoid a situation whereby students end up failing to realize that the same formulas that are used in Mathematics (math) are applicable in the estimates. I strongly believe that the book will be able to even penetrate the international market.
