Two magazines to check out: Fine Homebuilding and Journal of Light Construction. Both are aimed at building homes, garages, and other stuff that (usually) doesn't require steelworkers.

For houses, and for a how-to manual, I'm a fan of:

Robert Roskind
Building Your Own House (Vol 1) (Exteriors)
Building Your Own House (Vol 2) (Interiors)

Cheers, Wayne

Sorry for my incorrect spelling of babel.

The humorous idea that I was wishing to convey is that things are still done the same as when they built the "Tower of Babel" . I'm referring to the last part of the story where no one has any idea of what anyone else is doing (saying).
