Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A shed is perfect structure for added storage, workshops, or living space, and Wagner, who has written many books on building constructions, supplies expert instruction on building one. But while the book has the fantastic layout and organization expected of the "Ultimate Guide" series, it is a cheat. There are designs and instruction to construct three not terribly interesting sheds, but the publishers would like you to buy 12 shed blueprints via a tear-out form. Sure, the chapters on foundation, framing, and construction are good, but this information can be found with many more building projects in Wagner's previous book, Barns, Sheds, and Outbuildings. Not recommended. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
