Home Maintenance Manual.
Richmond, Jim; And Others
This manual, written especially for the Navajo and Hopi Indian Relocation Commission, is a simply worded, step-by-step guide to home maintenance for new homeowners. It can be used for self-study or it can serve as instructional material for a training class on home ownership. The manual is organized in nine sections that cover the following topics: basic information (owner's manuals, warranties, services, tools, and fire safety), electrical repairs, gas repairs, woodstove repairs, appliance repairs, plumbing, exterior maintenance, interior maintenance, and doors and windows. In each section, various simple repairs are shown in a step-by-step sequence, illustrated by line drawings. Distinction is made between the types of simple repairs that can usually be done by homeowners and those that require a professional service person. A glossary of terms completes the manual. (KC)
