Best Shed Plan Book?

I'm pretty handy, have experience working with wood, and have power tools, but I have little experience when it comes to building construction. I've looked at shed plans and watched videos but some of the basic concepts are inevitably left out. Can anyone recommend a good comprehensive book for building sheds? I'm not looking for anything fancy, big, or pretty. I've checked out the local Home Depot type stores and that's about what I'm aiming for. Nothing special.

Thanks

Book

This one looks good:

Amazon.com: Building a Shed: Siting and Planning a Shed, Building Shed Foundations, Adding Custom Details (Build Like a Pro Series) (9781561586196): Joseph Truini: Books

You could try to find this at your local book store and preview before you purchase.

I'm really looking for something that hits the fundamentals hard. Shed will be very utilitarian, but I want it to be well built. Don't care about shutters or colonial look or any of that. Even so, as luck would have it, that's the book I was considering. I'll get it and check it out.

Put another way, if you have any book suggestions for 101 construction, let me know. My knowledge here and there.

Thanks for the reply.

Shed

Well built will be as much about the materials used as the method of construction.

For example: Treated lumber for the floor framing. Advantech for the floor. Sheathing and siding rather than thin siding panels.

Good luck with your project. Come back when you have questions.
