Hey everyone~

I will be building a 1,000-1,200-sq.-foot home on a slab on grade in North Carolina. Need to know of any good videos/DVDs or online sources ya'll have used that include the topics below to help me get familiar with what I will undertake. Of course, the videos don't have to solely teach these items only, but just wanted to make sure if I bought a DVD, it would at the least, have the info. that I'm seeking included. Thanks for any help!

1. Laying out plumbing for a slab on grade
2. Running round (plastic) ductwork and installing a supply-only ventilation system
3. Installing vertical vinyl siding
4. Installing corrugated steel (painted) roofing
5. Laying out and installing outdoor wood boiler for heating home
6. Whatever else you recommend!

Any other beginner DVDs about building terminology, carpentry, tools, etc. would also be helpful.

Hi mountain-gal, in addition to specific DVDs you buy or rent, I recommend checking on-line sources, as there are many. Often they are up to date, and of course, free. You can find just about anything on YouTube, and as always, viewer beware on the quality of the content. Searches like "how to", "install" and "best practice" and the topic you looking for may help to find better-quality YouTube videos. Another source would be on-line videos produced by manufacturer or builder organizations. These are of course pro-whatever for the product or organization, so keep that in mind. But they often will highlight best practices or at the least provide background for what products are out there and how they're used.

YouTube, window install. Industry video, fiberglass batts.

Good luck!
