Home Building Industry Publications

Through our affiliated company, MacLellan Media, Inc., we offer three outstanding home building industry publications for property developers or homeowners to utilize and understand industry guidelines for residential construction.

We offer the following books:

  • The Home Book: A Complete Guide to Homeowner and Homebuilder Responsibilities;
  • The National Home Maintenance Manual;
  • The Handbook of Specifications and Scopes of Work for Trade Contractors.

All have the common theme of home building quality control, SB 800 Construction compliance and industry standards of care. Consumer expectations, workmanship guidelines and standards, and structured maintenance programs are emphasized throughout each publication.

Our residential property development publications are written and display information in an easy to understand format so anyone can get involved in compliance and or maintenance of their property.
