Retail Lumber Sheds And Sales Equipment

PREFACE No argument for the building of lumber sheds is advanced in this book. The increasing value of lumber and the tightening of competition have made it necessary for retailers to avoid all possible losses, including those of stock so it is taken for granted that readers recognize the value of adequate sheds and that their interest centers rather in the planning of structures suited to their own specific needs. All the building principles discussed in the succeeding pages have been checked up, so far as that has been possible, by the actual experience of practical lumbermen. It has not been possible to collect a series of plans each one of which without modification would be suitable for all parts of the country. Differences in climate and in the kinds and sizes of lumber carried in the yard make necessary a difference in the details of-any given type of shed. But it is hoped that the designs included in this book may be of help to the retailer who is in search of suggestions. A number of plans have been included that were first published in the AMERICAN L UMBERMAN O . t hers have been taken from Lumber Shed Construction, by Met. L. Saley. Still others have been made especially for this book. Assistance has been given by so many people that it is impossible to mention them all by name but the compilers thanks are extended to all those who gave so generously of their time and experience. Without this help the book could not have been written. 3 TABLE OF CONTENTS PAGE INTRODUCT . I . O . .
