This second edition of CPi's “Complete Guide to Contemporary Sheds” picks up where the original left off. All of the most popular shed plans are still here, plus we've added several new designs to further widen the scope of the styles and plans. Because sheds with overhead doors are very popular with homeowners who drive a riding lawn mower or own a snow thrower, we feature a third mini-garage type shed. All major construction steps are shown in clear, full-color photos, accompanied by materials lists and a full set of plan drawings. For those who simply want a nice-looking outbuilding that's easy to build, we've added new utility shed plans to the mix. Combined with more than a dozen full sets of shed plans and step-by-step photos, the up-front technique material shows you how to accomplish every aspect of shed-building, from design to adding roof coverings.

With their classic barns and fences, American small farms, and the buildings that support these farms, serve a much-needed purpose as much today as then have in the past. Even with the advent of new technology frequently used on farms, these buildings have changed relatively little and are still used to house the animals that so many small farm owners work with and the feed, supplies, and equipment needed to maintain those animals. Every well-meaning farmer or property owner with livestock, small animals, or farming equipment has need of a barn or a series of outbuildings. Unfortunately, many farmers now rely on expensive contractors and construction companies to do a job many farmers traditionally undertook themselves. Knowing how to build these structures is not only a lost American art form, it is also a skill that can save you thousands of dollars. This book has been designed to ensure everyone who has ever thought of building their own barns, outbuildings, or animal pens knows exactly what is entailed-from inception of the design to the final construction stages. You will learn exactly what you need to start building outbuildings, barns, farming equipment, and farm supplies. For each of the structures showed within this book, you will learn the required dimensions and extra space you might not have previously considered, including space for your motorized Machinery, a workshop for maintaining your equipment, and loft space for hay bales, feed, and farming equipment. Regardless of what you need for your small farm or property, you will have a complete list of detailed building design plans. You will learn which building materials are best for creating your needed items as well as the best designs and methods of buildings.

If you are looking to save thousands of dollars by building your own farm structures and equipment; this book will walk you through every step of the design, preparation, and construction process, ensuring success and capturing the lost art of small farm self-sufficiency.
