Packed with detailed illustrations, plans and commonsense advice, this new edition of the classic book on building a shed is like having a professional carpenter beside you, making the project easy to control and successful.

About the Author

David and Jeanie Stiles are the authors of 15 do-it-yourself books and write frequently for magazines and newspapers. They divide their time between New York City and East Hampton, New York. For a total escape, they retreat to a one-room cabin they built overlooking a pond in the Hudson Valley.
