This book was great! It had a lot of useful tips and building projects that have been added to my must do list. It had a simple, easy-to-read layout and list of materials. The book also contains step-by-step directions with diagrams so the projects are clear and easy to follow. A great book for anyone interested in do-it-yourself projects, homesteading, or sustainable living no matter what your skill level.

This book had some great projects but unfortunately my community has restrictions on some of them but for the farm owner or those with acres of land this would be a great gift.
