Very informative! This is the best book of this type I have seen. Separate chapters cover all the basics, such as foundations, roofing, siding, doors & windows, etc. Good hand-drawn plans and drawings and lots of pictures make it easy to visualize how to proceed. The book includes step-by-step plans on how to build 7 different structures, but it’s the background “how-to” stuff that I found really helpful.

Looks pretty, but this is NOT a very useful book [Just over 1.5 stars]

Nice overview of building some sheds etc.+ Easy, pretty good examples, nice detail in some projects- choppy, some structures are very ornate, some would be $$$$$$ todayI would have like more info on the finer details, like flashing, door and window fitting, etc.I’ll try to write a separate review of the seller. The bottom line is the copy I received reeked of cigarette smoke. Not just a little smell. It reeked. Like, stick it outside on the deck and find a way to open most of the pages for days stink. Like, use a deodorizer stink.If you’re a contractor, or do regular projects, this may be too basic. If you can swing a hammer and use a saw, this ought to be ok.
