But another important benefit of building it yourself is the satisfaction that comes from improving your own landscape and surroundings. A well-constructed barn, shed, or outbuilding can be a source of pride for many years -- and will also enhance the value of your property.
In How to Build Small Barns & Outbuildings, Monte Burch takes readers step by step through the fundamentals of general construction -- from planning and laying out a site to do-it-yourself instructions on framing, roofing, wiring, plumbing, and much more.
Over 20 projects offer complete plans and instructions for how to build a wide range of structures that are designed for adaptability and usefulness. Someof the projects featured in the book include:
-- All-Purpose Barns
-- Pole Barn
-- Horse Barn
-- Milk Barn
-- Equipment or Machine Shed
-- Sheep or Goat Shelter
-- Garden Sheds
-- Home Office
-- Add-On Garage
-- Two-Car Garage
-- Guest House
-- Roadside Stand
-- Chicken House
-- Insulated Dog House
Written especially for the do-it-yourself homeowner on a budget, How to Build Small Barns & Outbuildings helps take the mystery out of small-scale construction. The no-nonsense advice and wide applicability of the projects to both backyards and homesteads makes this book a valuable addition to the home builder's reference shelf.

It also has over 20 plans for various buildings ranging from pole barns and equipment sheds to guest houses, garages and studios. I have built several sheds from plans in this book and plan to build more.
I bought this book to build a small music studio (16'x24')
and it was easy to read. It had everything I needed in it to build the building and the project came out great. After reading this book you will think it is easy to build small buildings.
