The Illustrated Home Book and CD-ROM

Because a picture is worth a thousand words!

The Illustrated Home is the most impressive collection of detailed illustrations that you'll ever see, taken from the equally impressive ASHI@Home Training System.

You get both the CD ROM and The Illustrated Home Book.

Each of the clip art illustrations has been created by an expert illustrator and reviewed by the expert home inspectors and engineers at Carson Dunlop. You'll find quality that rivals the illustrations from The Journal of Light Construction and Fine Homebuilding.
