According to special issues editor Chuck Miller, the author of our recent article on Channeling the Greene Brothers, nearly 30 years ago, Fine Homebuilding magazine received a letter asking us to "publish less young and green, and more Greene & Greene."
We've run our fair share of articles covering Craftsman-style homes over the years, but Chuck's recent trip out west to visit California sausage king Bruce Aidells was one plum assignment. Aidells' California residence is a true homage to the brothers' signature style. If you caught the article in our recent Houses issue, you won't want to miss the audio slideshow. It includes plenty of photos that didn't make it into the magazine, as well as an interview with the homeowner himself.

About this blog
As the editor of Fine Homebuilding, I spend my weekdays trying to produce a magazine that will satisfy 300,000 of the most demanding builders, both professional and amateur. As the owner of a 200-year old Cape in Connecticut’s Litchfield Hills, I spend weekends working on my house.
Each activity invariably informs, and complicates, the other. In this blog, I’ll offer observations from both worlds -- publishing and building -- with the hope of providing some useful or at least entertaining insights.
