Build Your Own Outdoor Structures in Wood
Build a playhouse for the kids, an attractive storage shed, a greenhouse on your patio for year-round use--even a guest cabin or cottage. All these projects and many more come from two basic methods for building with wood: pole structure and stud-frame structure. Both are clearly explained here, shown in exact detail, with full-color photos of every step for every aspect, from concrete slab and wood floors to walls, windows, and doors, to the roof and the finishing touches. 64 pages (all in color), 8 1/2 x 11.
