Ever dreamed of having your very own garden retreat? Somewhere you could indulge your favourite pastime, sleep under the stars, or finally achieve your ambition of working from home? Off-the-shelf sheds aren't always the answer—the cheap ones are badly made, freezing cold, and fall apart within a few years, and the expensive ones are, well, really expensive. But what if you could build your very own shed from scratch? What if you had the plans, skills, and materials to create a retreat that was as stylish and well-made as a posh shed but for a fraction of the price?
How to Build a Shed is the ultimate practical guide. With its clear easy-to-follow instructions, expert advice, and specially commissioned illustrations, you'll be able to source the materials, choose the right tools, and build your dream shed on a budget. How to Build a Shed is aimed at anyone keen to have a go, even if they've never used a hammer.
