Backyard Building: Treehouses, Sheds, Arbors, Gates, and Other Garden Projects (Countryman Know How) (Paperback)
Here is the very best of backyard building: Popular building authors Jeanie and David Stiles—whose treehouse once garnered a spread in Architectural Digest—have gathered dozens of original plans for treehouses, playhouses, and sheds, as well as a summer house, tea house, garden arbor, and functional workroom.
Backyard Building will cover backyard accessories, the fundamentals of tools and materials, and useful tips based on real-life questions from the couple’s popular website. Its unique style, with hand-drawn illustrations to guide the reader through the building process in a user-friendly way, stands out from the crowd. The clear, detailed drawings are not only easy to follow but a pleasure to look at; they are supplemented by irresistible color photographs.
DAVID AND JEANIE STILES have written a total of twenty-three books on woodworking projects which have sold over half a million copies. Their work has appeared in Architectural Digest, House Beautiful, Better Homes & Gardens, Country Living, and The New York Times. Television appearances include HGTV, the Discovery Channel, and The Today Show, on which they built a treehouse in three hours. They live in New York City and East Hampton, New York.
