So you want a book that covers all of the thousands of things that may need to be fixed in homes that no two are alike. Dozens of different construction methods and materials.
HMM.
You would need volumes, one for framing, siding, electrical, foundations, roofing, masonry, ECT.

Just spend some time here and then write the book. Just about every problem is here and you may find that plumbing and basements are near the top of the list so start there.

You also need those books or volumes written for the UK. We have a lot of books here, some good, and others that really are not worth the money. I sure you have them too, but you will probably need to get a local recommendation.

Would need them for New Zealand, and another set for Australia. Completely different codes and construction materials in each country, and very different to US and UK methods.
