Podcast Episode 60 — Brent Hull Interview
Historic homes, Lone Star Restoration, the North Bennet St. School, and the Building Technology Heritage Library.
In this podcast episode, host and editor Justin Fink is joined by design editor Brian Pontolilo and a special guest — Brent Hull, the founder and owner of Hull Historical. They talk about Brent’s books, his show, and his efforts to #KeepCraftAlive. But first, let’s make something clear:
The Hull on the right is Brett Hull, the hockey star who was named one of the “100 Greatest NHL Players” in history. But the Hull on the left, the bigger star, at least in the Fine Homebuilding firmament, is Brent Hull, design consultant, industry speaker, recipient of four John Staub Awards for craftsmanship, author of three books on historical homes, and star of the History Channel’s Lone Star Restoration series.
