PLEASE DO NOT BUY THIS.You will regret it.
The inaccurate dimensions, pictures, and explanations in this book will leave any first time shed builder in complete confusion, anger, and spending much more money than required. The build sheets are inconsistent and inaccurate and use wood nomenclature from the east coast so anyone attempting to purchase wood on the west coast will have even experienced lumber yards confused. There are nowhere near enough pictures for any of the builds. One small example of this. I am currently building the modern utility shed. It has you cut rear and side panels to 43 3/4 while the front panel is a typo to 48 3/4. So now I had to rip a panel off that I nailed in after standing back and seeing non of the lines match on the smart panels.There’s a $35 panel I’ll never get back. Also the front wall is missing several measurements. Hope you like guessing because most of these builds are half done incorrectly filled out sudoku puzzles that the author has left for you to figure out. PLEASE DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK.
