This book was good for simple, basic overheads for patios and/or decks. It gave some limited plans and recommendations for lumber. It also listed a variety of roofing materials but was somewhat unspecific on the pros and cons of each. We liked what the book did offer, but finished it feeling rather unsatisfied.
Helpful information, but not as good as "Gazebos & Other Structures". I'm not sure that the editors actually have built any of the structures described. Lots of cutesy California designs. Great photos of construction techniques, some of which could be challenged.
For construction is a really good guide, also for beginners like me. However, they show some pictures and reference that we want to have the drawings, but then they show drawings for a different design, just a couple of cases but disappointing
There are mostly pictures of different gazebos - no plans, comparison, etc.
Item as described. Thank you
Great ideas and Photos.
