A Build-It-Yourself Guide

by Jeanie Stiles, David Stiles

One of the joys I find most rewarding on a homestead is building things. This book has many plans for building stuff around the farm. The plans are in the book, but you can still build the structures of your dreams to your liking! Consider this an idea book, or build to exact specs, it's up to you to add you personal touch to your building projects. From an elegant gazebo on the water to a rustic log cabin, this practical guide provides complete plans and illustrated step-by-step instructions for constructing more than 20 low-cost, sturdy, and beautiful outdoor structures. With expert advice on basic building techniques, necessary tools, and safety considerations, David and Jeanie Stiles show you everything you need to know to create your own dazzling garden pavilion, tree house, sauna hut, and more.
