Build Your Own, September 22, 2000 By Spud (Bynum, NC USA)
This review is from: Sheds: The Do-It-Yourself Guide for Backyard Builders (Paperback) I first read Sheds in the local public
library. It was fun just to read because I was interested in construction and I could understand how each part of the construction
fit together with the others. When it came time for me to actually build a shed, I tried to find the library's copy, but I couldn't
locate it, so I ended up buying it. I was glad I did. I found out that the book had been revised and expanded.I've used this book
exclusively to build my shed. I took it out to the site and kept referring to it during construction. It even inadvertently spent a few
nights in the uncompleted shed. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. There are materials lists for most sheds right
down to how many pounds of nails you will need. I could go the local building supply place and ask for what I needed in an
intelligent way. By the end of my project, the supply people knew me by name! Be careful about the chapter called "More Basic
Sheds." Things were going...

Good ideas, but inconsistent in attention to details, June 13, 2003 By Henry Perkins (Santa Clara, CA USA)
  This review is from: Sheds: The Do-It-Yourself Guide for Backyard Builders (Paperback) [Summary: I really wanted to like
"Sheds" a lot. The book has an excellent beginning and the first project has good attention to detail. It's unfortunate that most of
the book, including the project featured prominently on the cover, has a much lower quality level; the author frequently omits
mention of some or all the materials, hardware, and tools needed for the various projects. "Sheds" includes a wide range of
construction types, and is an excellent book for shed IDEAS. But as a shed construction manual it's pretty frustrating.]The
author is up-front in saying that this isn't a book for novices; here's the last paragraph of the Introduction:"SHEDS is written for
creative, hands-on homeowners with do-it-yourself experience in weekend projects and basic home repair. You should have at
least a few building and repair projects under your tool belt, be ready to tackle medium-sized, challenging projects and be willing
to stretch your carpentry skills...

Probably the best book on building sheds, April 25, 2000 By Donald J. Berg (Rockville Centre, NY USA)
    This review is from: Sheds: The Do-It-Yourself Guide for Backyard Builders (Paperback) This book has the information you
need to design and build your own ideal backyard shed. In fact, it serves as a great primer for any construction project. It covers
planning, designing, permits, materials and construction methods. Stiles will guide you through the process, step-by-step, from
the paper plan to hanging up your tools - in the shed you built! There are hundreds of great illustrations and projects you can try:
a Victorian garden shed, cupolas, a Japanese boat shed, trash and recycling sheds, woodsheds, a pool pavilion and many
