In this excellent, well-organized manual, Cory (Deck Designs) shares numerous, clear illustrations and detailed construction information and techniques. His confident, expert instruction, honed in his previous books on deck construction, is apparent in the projects presented here. This book is more detailed than the Black & Decker Complete Guide to Porches & Patio Rooms and pairs nicely with Paula S. Wallace's Perfect Porches, which is inspirational rather than instructional. A solid addition to any home improvement collection. Recommended.
