The book is a how-to guide that young people and adults alike can use to build a backyard getaway.
He teaches basic construction techniques such as pounding nails and sawing boards, describes helpful tools and walks readers through all the steps involved in design and construction.
Mothes encourages kids to be creative, scrounge for materials and build their clubhouses themselves, maybe with a little help from an adult.
But he also includes more complex instructions for a grown-up getaway that could be used as a guest cottage, a studio or a potting shed.
"Keep Out!" sells for $18.95 in softcover.
