Preface

Since the first edition of Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation's Canadian Wood-Frame House Construction appeared in 1967, this publication has been the primary means by which builders, carpenters and students of housing technology have learned about wood-frame house construction in Canada. This publication continues to be the most widely-used reference in the field, in community colleges and in many university architecture programs.

This edition retains the convenient format of previous editions, reflecting the feedback from a broad cross-section of users across Canada. It is hoped that readers of this publi cation will continue to contribute their much-welcomed suggestions for future improvements.

The inclusion of Healthy Housing principles throughout this book represents a significant shift in awareness regarding the individual, social, environmental and economic impacts of the housing industry in Canada and around the world. Canadians continue to have good cause to be proud of their wood-frame house construction technology.

This latest edition is one among many continuing efforts toward the goal of providing choice in accessible, affordable and sustainable housing in Canada.
