About this book
The garage is often the last place in the home that gets a makeover?even though it's often desperately in need of an overhaul. But homeowners are catching on. Now, Rick Peters presents six themed ways to transform the garage into a comfortable, effective, and efficient space: enclosing a carport; making a mechanic's dream work area; adding a woodworking shop; creating a craft room; putting in storage (and more storage); and building a family room. All the work takes place on site, in real families' two-car garages, with the tasks divided into two groups: those that the average homeowner can accomplish him or herself, and those best left to professionals. The guide's friendly and easy-to-follow format shows what needs to be done and how to do it; the more demanding jobs receive extremely detailed descriptions that explain what the work entails, how long it should take, and what it typically costs.
This is followed with more than 20 new designs and projects appropriate for both rural and suburban homeowners, including a livestock shelter, add-on garage, small guest house, and home workshop.
About this book
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.
