DIY author and editor Atkinson introduces some lovely and functional designs for those wanting to expand their storage and living space with an outbuilding. He covers nine projects, from simple tool sheds to barns, offering some variations for each. The section on needs assessment detailing space and site considerations is excellent, the photos are inspirational, and the construction basics and techniques are appropriate for the confident beginner (there is no coverage of electrical or plumbing systems). Disappointingly, however, for detailed instructions and measurements one would have to buy the design plans in the book's last 30 pages. This is especially annoying because only an experienced builder can handle these projects without the purchased plans. A marginal investment.
