It's detailed enough for each exampled project. There's not too many full examples but how many do you need? It's a greenhouse. You build it according to either your allowable space or your needs. This book gives you examples of what you can use for the material and the sky is the limit for how advanced you want to go. Plastic film windows or Plexiglas or glass? Do you get much hail? Either wood or aluminum rails of some sort.

I could go on. It's a good book to get you started. Worth the look and then go to your Home Depot/Hardware store and get help with the material they sell.

The photos and designs are awesome. The information it gives on building, where to build, temperatures, etc is just what I was looking for. The book really seems to focus on how it looks, which isn't that important to me. Really great book with lots of cute side projects as well.

Great ideas, bad instructions! March 25 2012
By interested party - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a terrific source of good designs. The photographs are downright inspriring. It leaves a lot to be desired in terms of how the book tells you to construct the projects. If you don't know advanced woodworking techniques, this probably isn't the book for you. The bill of materials is inadequate, some of the items listed are incorrectly sized, some are non standard sizes causing additional expense. (The design could easily be sized for standard items.) Pick a project and have a carpenter on speed dial!

This book is a Gem! April 2 2014
By Big Daddy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am very pleased with this book. It contains much, much more useful information than I expected. I expected a book mostly on greenhouses of various styles and sizes: it is that, in respectable detail, but it also contains a large assortment of other garden oriented projects. The book is also technically well done, clearly professionally edited and organized. In addition, even a newbie in project construction will find generous explanations, photos and drawings to illustrate the details of construction techniques. Even for those who lack the time or space for any of the larger projects, there are many smaller projects to hold your interest and suggest new possibilities that might have otherwise escaped your thinking. Black and Decker tools ate used to illustrate construction users, but book is not a sales pitch for that brand.

To emphasize how pleased I am with the contents, I ordered several more copies as gifts for other members of my family! If your interests are in projects to complement your garden (or your spouse's garden), you won't be disappointed. On a scale of 1 to 5 stars, I rate this a solid 6 or even 7 stars!

I gave this book a 4 stars because I had a lot of question about greenhouses and it answered them all I just wish there were more plans and ideas. I would recommend this book to anyone who is thinking about build a greens or needs ideas for other garden projects.

Great detailed book Oct. 6 2012
By Patty Kalvelage - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great book to give a person examples of low to higher cost greenhouses. Detailed instructions with photos. Other great outdoor projects for gardeners to get started. I was hoping for a bit more info beyond the basic.
