How to Build Small Barns & Outbuildings
by Monte Burch

      Building your own barns and outbuildings offers many benefits, perhaps the most obvious being the money you can save. About half the costs of any building project is the labor, and, by doing it yourself, you can construct your building more economically, or even put up a larger building on the same budget.

      But another important benefit of building it yourself is the satisfaction that comes from improving your own landscape and surroundings. A well-constructed barn, shed, or outbuilding can be a source of pride for many years -- and will also enhance the value of your property.

      In How to Build Small Barns & Outbuildings, Monte Burch takes readers step by step through the fundamentals of general construction -- from planning and laying out a site to do-it-yourself instructions on framing, roofing, wiring, plumbing, and much more.

      Over 20 projects offer complete plans and instructions for how to build a wide range of structures that are designed for adaptability and usefulness. Someof the projects featured in the book include:

-- All-Purpose Barns
-- Pole Barn
-- Horse Barn
-- Milk Barn
-- Equipment or Machine Shed
-- Sheep or Goat Shelter
-- Greenhouse/Woodshed
-- Garden Sheds

-- Workshop
-- Home Office
-- Add-On Garage
-- Two-Car Garage
-- Guest House
-- Roadside Stand
-- Chicken House
-- Insulated Dog House

      Written especially for the do-it-yourself homeowner on a budget, How to Build Small Barns & Outbuildings helps take the mystery out of small-scale construction. The no-nonsense advice and wide applicability of the projects to both backyards and homesteads makes this book a valuable addition to the home builder's reference shelf.

      Winner in the Stanley National Home and Workshop Writers Association writing contest
