Episode 40: FHB House Materials, Shop Organization, Dust Collectors, and Miter Saw Stands
Plus, a debate on working in your shop vs working on site.
In an open discussion of the Fine Homebuilding FHB House demonstration project, the guys talked about sourcing building materials, sponsors who supply those materials, and our guiding purpose in trying new things — like No-Coat drywall tape for corners and Habito heavy-duty drywall. Podcast host and FHB editor Justin Fink, editorial director Rob Yagid, and design editor Brian Pontolilo also tackled windows with drywall returns, shop organization, dust collectors, and more.
