Overview

Written with the do-it-yourselfer in mind, Ultimate Guide: Barns, Sheds & Outbuildings gives readers the information they need to plan, build, and finish a utility building. This revised and expanded edition presents a variety of buildings, from the simplest garden shed to a backyard artist's studio and even a huge gambrel dairy barn. Part One begins with design and planning information to help potential builders locate their building, decide on its design, and decode architectural plans and building codes. Individual chapters detail the basics: building foundations, from simple shed foundations to poured concrete slabs; framing walls and roofs, including long sections on pole buildings and old-fashioned timber-framing techniques; and closing in the framing, including all types of roofing and siding as well as door and window installation. Other chapters cover the basic wiring and plumbing needs of barns, as well as options for interior and exterior finish work. Part Two presents design concepts, with photographs and detail views, of various buildings that readers can build.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This volume addresses key construction issues better than the second, 2005 edition. Layout considerations for plumbing and electrical have been enhanced, and the updated photos are large and beautiful. While the projects remain mostly the same, the resources list is completely revised and up-to-date. This guide contains excellent construction basics and good project designs, but be aware that it promotes 82 blueprints for sale from the publisher. Despite that, this is a solid addition. Strongly recommended.
