Maximize your outdoor living spaces through creative woodworking!

Today's challenging economic climate has motivated many homeowners to stay in their current homes rather than upgrade, and this has sparked a major trend in what is often called the "don't move: improve!" movement. By putting a small amount of money (and some time) into sprucing-up your backyard, you can create a veritable oasis with the projects in this book. Not only can these projects improve quality of life, but building them can also be a great financial decision.

Backyard Projects for Today's Homestead includes:

   • 20 illustrated step-by-step projects that are within the skill level of beginning woodworkers
   • Information on choosing durable materials, working with reclaimed lumber, applying finishes appropriate for outdoor wear
   • More than just outdoor furniture - includes chicken coops, decking, gates, etc
