About this item
Outdoor projects are perfect for the do-it-yourselfer, and the projects in this book are designed and presented specifically for those of us who spend 9 to 5 doing something other than carpentry or woodworking. If you can read a tape measure, drive a screw and a nail, and cut a straight line, you can handle any project in this book. Even if you are new to working with wood, you'll find handsome and useful projects in these pages that are perfect for getting your feet wet.
Just as the rooms inside your house are sized and furnished for a specific purpose, so too is the outdoor space around your house. The patio or deck is a room furnished for entertaining, the vegetable garden is a room equipped for growing food, and, if you have kids, there may be one or more areas for play equipment.
This Stanley-branded book is designed to help you think about your outdoor space as a whole and then create the garden structures and furnishings that fit the way your family lives. Here you will find 14 great projects covering everyting from simple outdoor furniture to a small garden shed and a colorful chicken coop. Each project is designed to fulfill a need, be easy to build without special skills, and be customizable to fit your space and your style.
