Written with the do-it-yourselfer in mind, Ultimate Guide: Barns, Sheds & Outbuildings gives readers the information they need to plan, build, and finish a utility building. This revised and expanded edition presents a variety of buildings, from the simplest garden shed to a backyard artist’s studio and even a huge gambrel dairy barn. Part One begins with design and planning information to help potential builders locate their building, decide on its design, and decode architectural plans and building codes. Individual chapters detail the basics: building foundations, from simple shed foundations to poured concrete slabs; framing walls and roofs, including long sections on pole buildings and old-fashioned timber-framing techniques; and closing in the framing, including all types of roofing and siding as well as door and window installation. Other chapters cover the basic wiring and plumbing needs of barns, as well as options for interior and exterior finish work. Part Two presents design concepts, with photographs and detail views, of various buildings that readers can build.

A book you’ll use as your guide-it’s that complete! This book covers every aspect of building a barn, from plumbing and roofs down to nails. I would have liked to see more of the barn designs, and less patterns that could be purchased, but overall a very informative book. This will stay on the top of our book stack.

Just like my Grandpa’s old barn! Great book for a wanna be builder or just to become more informed even if I do end up having someone else do the work. We have retired and looking to build a few usefull outbuildings on our ranch.Great price and fast delivery.

I borroewed this book from my local library just to review. Liked it so much I decided to buy my own copy as a building reference book. A self-trained DIY-er, I don’t have formal training in building construction (Foundation and framing). This book covers these areas in spades! I also found a newer edition when ordering, it’s got more plans than the older version, but for my needs, the older version would have been fine, but the cost increase was negligible, so I got the newer version. I am planning to build my own woodworking shop in the back yard in the very near future and this book will be a great help. This book has a lot with great details throughout. Highly recommend!
