Episode 24: STAFDA Convention, Vinyl-Siding Penetrations, Kitchen-Island Venting, and Rough Openings
Some cool tool talk from Patrick McCombe who reports on the real-deal STAFDA convention and much more.
In this episode, host and managing editor Justin Fink talks with editor in chief Rob Yagid, associate editor Patrick McCombe, and design editor Brian Pontolilo about the serious pro-tools convention held by STAFDA, how to make a proper penetration in existing vinyl siding, venting a dishwasher in a kitchen island, and a question from a reader who observed some funky framing.
