This book covers all aspects of building structures, including planning, site prep, roofing, siding, tools, etc. Lots of well-drawn pictures and diagrams make for a clear understanding. The book doesn't include any plans, but has a section in the back where you can send away for any of 33 plans for a small fee. All-in-all a good reference, especially in conjunction with other books.

If you do not know what a plumb bob is, or how to mark a chalk line, this book will be of great value. If you are looking for plans to build a shed, buying this book is similar to paying for an order form.
This will show you from the ground up how to build a shed, yes. However, one must pay another 15-30 dollars for the actual plans, despite the covers boast of "special section: 33 Great New Plans!". Reason #298 why to look at the book at a real bookstore before buying, too.
If you know how to build anything, you may see this as a waste of time/money.

This book is great for getting a basic idea or deciding on what type of shed/garage but it contains very little information on actually building any of them. It does include a order sheet if you actually want to pay for the plans. That in itself is not a bad thing as it does take work to produce plans but the cover of this book has "Projects and plans" on the front cover so it is very misleading. Also in my opinion it only covers very basic construction methods and does not address many of the required methods for actually building a shed. The series "Build like a Pro: Building a Shed" on the other hand is a example of a useful book.

I purchased this paperback "idea" book to try and come up with an outdoor shop and to do some woodworking I no longer have space to do in my Garage, where over time I have accumulated way too much stuff. Also I could store some wood and get out of the house a little more. This book, Sheds & Garages, is a good source for the ideas I am looking for and with the other three, I have determined a shed with some additions that will let in more light, as it will be under some trees in the yard. Most of the project ideas in this book include mini plans, which are enough for me to build with and at the back of this book are many plans you can purchase for the larger buildings. Plan prices start at $20 and go up to $300+. I like it.

I can pretty much build anything that I can imagine. But the problem I have is trying to imagine something first. If you look around most neighborhoods the cookie cutter sheds (both metal and wood) are uninspiring. This book will take care of that. This book will give you the ideas and inspiration to go beyond what you can get at the home warehouse stores and actually make a utility shelter/shed that will enhance your backyard. The book covers all types of sheds and garages, from small to large. Even if your shed project is a future "to do" item you will still enjoy looking at the craftmanship that went into these structures.

This book is Awesome! I love the Lean-Too-Shed the most (page 98). The plan is to attach it the back of my brick house. I also like how they walk you through the many different steps of construction, which is important for the less experienced like me.

This is a pretty decent book. It has a good assortment of photographs to inspire, and it does a good job of describing the basics of building a shed or garage. The authors could have really knocked it out of the park by adding in some detailed information necessary for shed builders, such as tables showing lumber span lengths, and diagrams and span lengths of different trusses. But anyway a pretty good book.

I bought this book for ideas and tips. It is a handy book that I used several times for information in helping decide how I want my shed to look. Getting a kit from the local supply yard would be quick and easy but also plain and boring. This provides an option to get away from plain and boring
