“I purchased the three gable pavilion plan for an outdoor kitchen project here in Boise, Idaho. This allowed me to get started faster than if I designed it myself. I was able to quickly get the lumber and hardware package ordered. A huge time saver! The plan is so concise that I’m confident enough to have a fab shop start welding my cabinets before I complete my building. I’m impressed, thanks Kent.”

“Kent you are simply THE BEST of the best! The drawings are perfect, very professionally done and to have your video to go with the drawings…..amazing. I’m an electrician but I have build a few houses and had to have drawings. But your drawings are awesome! I downloaded them to a thumb drive and had Staples to print them in color and place them in a spiral binder. Your drawings will make it so simple to “modify” for my 14′ x 16′ patio especially with your cut list. I’m looking forward to doing business with you again and again! Thank you, Anson Christian Sr Cleveland, Tennessee”

“Plans are great. I enjoy the thickness the panels make. I had a problem with the concrete staying together after two days of drying and realized it was my fault as I didn’t mix anything with it. I’ll be trying some lighter weight material on the next attempt. Plans are excellent.”

“Love the plans! I got the garden box plan bundle and it is great when it comes to the measurements for the wood. One thing I believe is missing is a general idea on what weight of concrete bag to use to get multiples of the size of forms I’m making so that I won’t have concrete left over. Just adding a simple chart with weight of bags and how much of each form a bag fills (partials or whole), would suffice.”

“The directions & drawings were perfect. The only thing I would add is a parts list at the end, so you can take it to the store. That way you don’t need to read through the document to create an itemized list. I like the idea so much that I created another version out of plate steel. It’s a good bit heavier that the wood, so I guess it’s not for everyone. I just knew I would be making dozens of casts, and didn’t have faith that the wood would hold up.”

“I am very happy with the plans and already decided this was what I want over my patio. I didn’t get to my favorite saw mill for lumber yet. I will probably be using hemlock since that is what he primarily cuts. I am hoping to increase the footprint for the posts and would consider enlarging the entire thing for a 12 – 13 foot distance between posts instead of 10. This will just be to close on my patio. So much good information on these plans! I have learned a great deal about different things and refreshed my mind on some of the things I haven’t used in such a long time. Chomping at the bit to get started! Please get back to me if you can help me with any info on increasing the footprint! I have already used your design for the pergola to assist me in making a smaller version to support a swing in the back yard that we just love. I have a little landscaping to do around it yet, but so nice! Thank you for your well thought out designs!”

“Love the plans easy to follow, applying first coat of oil, love the simplified version. Can’t wait to put in the concrete and try them out.”

“First off, the green house looks beautiful and well crafted. Really great work. As a sound guy from LA I have to compliment you on the excellent production value of your video. I’m impressed that you took the time to record Voice Over that sounds pleasing. Even the sound effects were nice. The camera work and CGI was also great; simple and no flashy edits. While this project is more than I can handle I am inspired to continue learning how to do stuff like this on my own one day. Thank You!”

“I just spent 20 minutes watching thins while open mouthed. Not joking, I’m love with this greenhouse and I wish I can have at least 1/10 this skill and professionalism one day. Great job and I’ll watch ALL the videos, thanks a lot for inspiring me in my future countryside life <3”

“I just finished framing my wood shed. I upsized the posts and beams to 8×8 and 6×6. I did this so that the shed would match the timbers on the house. All I have left is the roof. Thank you for working up these plans.”

@AlaskaDevin

“As a contractor with over 40+ years of building experience myself, I must say, I am impressed with your build of this greenhouse. You’ve done an excellent job, and for a small greenhouse, it is not only very well built, it’s beautiful as well. Your use of lap joints, dado’s, handmade louvered vents, and all the other building methods used, including the use of stops and such, even the hand made forms for pouring the concrete foundation, would make anyone believe you were an experienced master builder. In this build, I see better building methods being utilized than in most of the homes today that people actually live in. End result is a gorgeous, functional greenhouse that will last for many years. Great job!”
