This book contains a brief overview of 42 plans of outdoor structures ranging from gazebos to to playhouses to compost bins to swings to bridges. To see the actual plans, you must mail order them. They cost between $20 and $85.
Sorry, this book misses the mark. I was looking for a plan to build a garden bridge over a drainage ditch in my yard. All this book does is show you a picture and tell you where you can purchase the plans. I am unhappy with this book and am returning it.
I have loved using this book since it's inception in 1995. The plans are not expensive at all, since I work with architects and designers, which can really drive up the cost. I am ordering a plan for a beautiful Art Studio / guesthouse, complete with kitchen and bath, for $75.00. The set of plans cost $50.00 almost 15 years ago, so they haven't gone up much. This book is published by Home Planners, Inc. which has been in business for many years and [...]I'm sorry for the people who ordered the book somehow thinking it would include the full set of plans. What you will get is a very nice drawing and a floor plan to describe what the project is. There are 42 designs for everything under the sun, and my clients love picking out projects to build as much as I do. Give the book a chance and you are sure to find something you too will enjoy.
This book has such beautiful plans for your estate. They look easy enough that your basic carpenter could build. I really am going to try having someone to build the Teenage Theatre even though my kids are grown. It would be nice for any age group, young or older.
I'm on the lookout for books that have diagrams of very small structures for the yard that might be used as guesthouses. Many books that I have looked at have buildings that are too big, or are aimed at the do-it-yourself crowd -- more plans, fewer different ideas. This book has 12 drawings of small buildings that might be used as designed or slightly modified to make an overnight house for guests. Some of the gazebos presented are unusual as well.I would like to be able to find 3 or 4 more books with this focus.
