Welcome! My name is Dave Malcolm and I’m the proud and dedicated owner of this site. My goal is to inspire people who want to learn how to build affordable backyard buildings such as chicken coops, sheds, pergolas and etc. I come up with these project plans not only by myself but also with projects that are designed by the fellow DIY’ers from around the world.


This site can come in handy for people who lack any woodworking skills and are complete beginners. It can also aid seasoned professionals who have substantial experience on their sides. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never even given woodworking a second thought before. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been crazy about woodworking and all it entails for your entire life. My site can give you motivation, practical suggestions and free comprehensive how to guides.
