As a guide for dreamers as well as those who are ``ready-to-build,'' this concise yet detailed overview of the construction of a large out-building will serve both beginning and experienced builders. From simple enclosures for storage to workshop space to fully finished living space, Wagner covers all the bases. His book, while short on design suggestions, is chock full of practical solutions to common site and building problems. Wagner writes in an upbeat, problem-solving tone that is encouraging to those who might otherwise be skeptical of the entire process. His suggestions are consistently economical and environmentally friendly. Excellent illustrations supplement the text.
