The Magazine You Built

After 25 years, the country's best builders still are sharing what they know in Fine Homebuilding's pages

It started with a small ''Editor Wanted'' ad in Fine Woodworking in 1980 and a debut issue a year after that. Twenty-five years later, Fine Homebuilding continues to bring the know-how of the country's best builders to a readership of avid professionals and eager do-it-yourselfers. Contributing editor Scott Gibson talks to editors who were there at the start and writes about how the magazine has evolved over its history, all the while keeping a focus on presenting helpful, useful building information.
