Best book on construction materials?

Having browsed thru the table of contents of Alton Everest's "studio construction on a budget" it certainly seems erudite and technical but not necessarily "hands on". Can anybody tell me if his book gets specific as to what construction materials to use in building the listening room?

Once there, click on, at the bottom of page.
I some how down loaded a PDF file yesterday, called Practical Guidelines For Building A Sound Studio from this site, but can't seem to find it this morning. Most of what was in the PDF file is covered in Acoustic 101. He mentions you should have some basic construction skills or have a neighbor or family member who does. Hope this helps.
