Building a shed is different than building a house or a barn. Sheds have their own special challengees - and this book address these in a large format complete with crisp, clear color photos and occasional line drawing illustrations. As with many Taunton books, the paper is heavy and the cover is very glossy - this book is a keeper.
The first three chapters discuss general preparation before you begin, construction methods and building materials. The final four chapters each focus on the construction of particular shed:
- Lean-To Shed Locker
- Saltbox Potting Shed
- Colonial Style Shed (cover)
- Gambrel Storage Barn (this is really a shed, not a barn)
