First on my agenda - build the double compost bin which I plan on doing in a few weeks. Oh and I will be building it by myself. No man involved! Tools and building materials are listed in the book (for each and every project) as are detailed instructions. Really, unless you don't read or just skim over the instructions as I've come to realize is a man's inherent trait*, there's no excuse in doing it incorrectly. Also included are photographs of each step which is helpful for those who are a "hands on" learner. Tips for making great compost are next. It's not as easy as just throwing in your garbage and debris.
I want to make all 30 of these projects because they look so elementary but when it comes down to it, I don't need all of them. I will be making the Lean-to also. The instructions call for a polyethylene film to cover the lean-to which I couldn't agree with more. We used it in manufacturing our greenhouses. An alternative would be fiberglass but I prefer the film.
The best part of the entire book is that it's gender friendly and the projects difficulty level would be a maximum of 3 which is really nice.
* My humor is not intended to offend.
