From the Back Cover

Constructing your own small barn, shed, or utility structure will improve the value and appearance of your property whether you have one acre or a hundred. Plus, building it yourself can save as much as half the cost. Now expert help for the do-it-yourselfer arrives with How to Build Small Barns & Outbuildings, the long-awaited sequel to the classic Garden Way Publishing bestseller Building Small Barns, Sheds & Shelters (more than 200,000 copies sold). In his new book, Monte Burch begins by taking the reader through all the basics of construction, from planning to finishing--both inside and out. This is followed with more than 20 new designs and projects appropriate for both rural and suburban homeowners, including a livestock shelter, add-on garage, small guest house, and home workshop. How to Build Small Barns & Outbuildings offers projects with multi-use flexibility, so you can tailor your project to your specific needs. For example, there is an all-purpose barn design that can be adapted to serve multiple functions, as well as a combination greenhouse/woodshed and a home office/garage/guest-house.

Format: Paperback
This is a great general building reference book. I pull it out whenever I'm starting something new or if I want a refresher. This book has helpful detailed information on all phases of building design and construction. This includes: 1. Foundation design layout and pouring for slabs, piers, & footings of all sorts; 2. Framing design & construction-- whether pole or platform framing, roof trusses or rafters; 3. Siding & roofing options, design & construction details for each; 4. Wiring details from power to the service panel to switches, lighting and outlets; 5.Plumbing from the well to the septic leach field.
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 never built a building before, I did help build a deck.
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.

I was interested in learning how to build a outdoor storage/workshop building. This book gave me a great foundation. With it's acurate how to list, materials and dimensions, it give confidence to all do it yourselfers. I felt that the step by step from supplies to completion really proved invaluable. I would suggest this book to anyone interested in building their own buildings. I look forward to trying out the next design, a green house/garden shed. I feel this book should be apart of all libraries.

This book is written with simple jargon, clear illustrations and concise instructions. A great spring-board book for those new to construction.

Clear writing, accompanied by excellent illustrations for all the steps. Everything is included: planning, foundation, material, tools, foundation, windows, wiring and finishing. If you're a newbie, you're not wasting your money by buying this.

The author covers many areas of basic construction and gives cues for making the job easier and saving money. It is what I needed as I plan to build farm structures but why is there home plans included? The book does not give the detail necessary to attempt such structures. Speaking of the plans in the back of the book, my greatest peeve is that none of them include a materials lists.

Got this book to help me in building my barn but decided after attending a barn building seminar several times to have the barn builder build it for me. Wasn't too impressed with the layouts and directions.

Was a very poor book don't buy it.......If you want to learn about building anything .......How to do any of it. . No Measurements very poor pictures a total disappointment a wast of money. No measurements photos you will be better off going and taking pictures of someone else's shed and figure out your own measurements.
