More pictures, illustrations and diagrams would be helpful. Definitions for specific window/door/wall terms would also be helpful. Even if they were in a list off to the side for quick reference.

Constantly jumping between residential and commercial construction. Terminology misused. Most glaring example: "pouring and sculpting concrete" is a term that I am not familiar with. Concrete is placed, not poured. If its poured it's way too wet. In 41 years experience and a degree in Construction Engineering Management, I've never heard of somebody sculpting concrete on a construction project. There are several others as well Questions should be reviewed by somebody that has a better understanding of construction terminology and processes.

extensive use of undefined terminology, and lack of illustrations
