From the Back Cover
- Building Techniques-If you prefer to design your own outdoor haven, this book will lead you through the process. Beautiful, full-color photos provide the inspiration. Chapters on materials, techniques, groundwork, roof framing, and roofing explain everything from laying out post holes to calculating the rafters and applying roofing.
- Customizing Options-Even if you don't want to design your own project from scratch, this section shows you how to use custom roof brackets, trellis, and other elements to transform the plans into an outdoor structure that is uniquely your own.
- The Use of Color-An outdoor structure such as a gazebo should be a delight to the eye as well as a pleasure to use. That takes more than picking paint chips from the store. "The Use of Color" is a unique special section that provides color wheels and shows you how to use then to select color like an expert.
