Build Your Own I first read Sheds in the local public library. It was fun just to read because I was interested in construction and I could understand how each part of the construction fit together with the others. When it came time for me to actually build a shed, I tried to find the library’s copy, but I couldn’t locate it, so I ended up buying it. I was glad I did. I found out that the book had been revised and expanded.

Good ideas, but inconsistent in attention to details [Summary: I really wanted to like “Sheds” a lot. The book has an excellent beginning and the first project has good attention to detail. It’s unfortunate that most of the book, including the project featured prominently on the cover, has a much lower quality level; the author frequently omits mention of some or all the materials, hardware, and tools needed for the various projects. “Sheds” includes a wide range of construction types, and is an excellent book for shed IDEAS. But as a shed construction manual it’s pretty frustrating.]
