Building upon the success of earlier versions, which sold more than 250,000 copies, Building Sheds by Joseph Truini provides all the expert advice needed to construct a shed from start to finish.
With broad appeal, Building Sheds, which includes nearly 500 photos and illustrations, offers a range of options to help do-it-yourselfers complete one of the most popular outdoor building projects. The book features instructions and plans for five different styles of sheds:
- timber-frame garden
- low-maintenance storage
- cedar shingle
A no-nonsense guide, Building Sheds details every step from designing a shed to match individual storage needs to selecting materials. Author Joseph Truini also offers advice on constructing foundations, installing windows and doors, and building stairways and ramps.
Detailed working drawings enable do-it-yourselfers to build the sheds outlined in the book as well as to customize a project by mixing and matching techniques.
"Lots of handy tips, exceptionally clear illustrations, and photography make this a valuable resource if you're keen to build that special retreat."—Good Woodworking
