"This beautifully illustrated guide is the one book you need to build an outdoor retreat that fits your lifestyle. You will find step-by-step instructions with complete materials lists for the most popular gazebos, pavilions, and arbors."
Green Bay Press Gazette
June 2, 2001

From the Back Cover

Gazebos & Other Outdoor Structures is the one book you need to build an outdoor retreat that perfectly suits your yard and your lifestyle. You'll find thoroughly illustrated step-by-step instructions with complete materials lists for the most popular gazebos, pavilions, and arbors.
- 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.

Exceptionally well written, obviously by a person or persons who have intimate knowledge of construction techniques. Extremely helpful, with great photos and diagrams. Great glossary. Actually, a great book on carpentry, disguised as a book for Gazebos. If you can buy only one book for encouragement, then this is it.

The book is full of great ideas and designs for gazebos and other outdoor structures suitable for the back yard and the cottage. For the novice carpenter it details lumber lists, tools required, definitions, and building techniques combining colour and graphics and photos to get the information across.

I did enjoy this book, but the plans were kind of basic. Great ideas from the photos for gardens around gazebos and placement in yards. I would have liked to have directions for screens or doors, but plans were for open styles.

The first part of this book reviews basic construction techniques that was not of interest to me. It has some good pictures for ideas, but the detailed construction plans are for very basic structures.

This book gave me some good ideas for building my gazebo that is now finished. It as worth the cost for the ideas, but could be a lot better.

Great illustrations and practical advice. I am building the hexagon (vs the octagon) and the 30/60 degree angles are intimidating, but the result has a lot of visual appeal. I particularly like some of the color schemes.

its a nice illustrated book but falls way short for any practical application,, in other words the pictures are nice, but don't try to use it as a guide to build what you see...
