Podcast Episode 62 — Who Really Lives in Tiny Homes?
The need for skirting, plus Rob's roof, Brian's cabinets, and Patrick's fire pit.
Fine Homebuilding associate editor Patrick McCombe joins FHB editor Justin Fink and design editor Brian Pontolilo in this podcast episode. The conversation ranges far and wide over plaster, batteries, small homes, and nailers. Plus, the team discussing continuing efforts to #KeepCraftAlive.
[Rob’s off this week — he’s busy ripping three layers of roofing off his house.]
