Product Description:

If anything will make you want to go back and be a kid again, it might be this book. Rather than holding plans for elaborate tree houses that probably require parental help to build, this volume gives kids the know-how to construct a backyard clubhouse using the materials and tools they can scrounge up. The author draws on his own experiences, building clubhouses with his friends when they were younger, but adds his "adult" knowledge of carpentry and architecture to also provide kids basic instruction in using tools, framing, installing windows, roofing and so much more. He assumes kids will be using basic hand tools, not power tools, and breaks it down into "essentials" (hammer, saw, screwdriver, tape measure) and "make life easier tools" (pliers, utility knife, wood chisel, plane). Although he encourages children to draw their own plans, he also provides plans for a basic shed house or a more advanced clubhouse with a loft. This "shop course in a book" would truly be fun for the whole family or neighborhood! 224 pages, pb. By Lee Mothes. Jess
