Publisher Comments:

Previous edition title: Tumbleweed DIY Book of Backyard Sheds and Tiny Houses Buildings from internationally recognized small living expert Jay Shafer have been featured on CNN, Oprah, Fine Homebuilding, and This Old House. Ranging in size from 100 to 120 square feet, these tiny backyard buildings can be used as guest cottages, art or writing studios, home offices, craft workshops, vacation retreats, or full-time residences. This book is filled with photos, elevation drawings, and door/window schedules for constructing 6 of the handsome little buildings, plus an extensive how-to set of instructions that can be applied to any backyard building project. This revised edition of Tumbleweed DIY Book of Backyard Sheds and Tiny Houses contains many new photos of buildings designed by Jay Shafer. Praise for Jay Shafer and Tumbleweed Tiny Houses "...guru of the small house movement." - John Blackstone, CBS "Move-in ready gems." - Denise Gee, Better Homes and Gardens "...instant curb appeal." - Bethany Little, The New York Times "...astounding." - Oprah Winfrey "A visionary designer..." - Catherine Halley, Domino Magazine "...100 square feet of bliss." - Thelma Guiterrez, CNN "...extraordinary attention to detail."

Synopsis:

Good things do come in small packages. Just ask internationally recognized small living expert Jay Shafer. His small buildings have appeared on CNN, Oprah, Fine Homebuilding, and This Old House.  Ranging in size from 100 to 120 square feet, these tiny backyard buildings can be used as guest cottages, art or writing studios, home offices, craft workshops, vacation retreats, or a full-time residence.

Filled with photos, elevation drawings, and door/window schedules for six box bungalows, Jay Shafer's DIY Book of Backyard Sheds, also includes an extensive how-to set of instructions that can be applied to any backyard building project.  Though conventionally built, these handsome little buildings have real doors, windows, and skylights with interesting and practical details throughout.  With extra attention  given to energy and space efficiency in their design, these tiny houses can help deliver the relief we all need on the road toward a sustainable world.
