Library Journal Review

For those interested in a self-sufficient lifestyle, this collection has something for everyone. The projects range from a simple garden trellis to more complex structures such as a greenhouse and chicken coop. Each project is well organized, with an exploded view image, cutting list, materials, and tools needed. Step-by-step illustrations do an excellent job of guiding users through the construction process. However, many of these projects have been lifted from the publisher's other books: The Complete Outdoor Builder (2016) and The Complete Guide to Greenhouses & Garden Projects (2011), which contributes to a lack of flow and cohesion throughout. VERDICT While great instruction makes this volume a strong contender, another option is Spike Carlsen's The Backyard Homestead Book of Building Projects. © Copyright 2017.
