Editorial Director Andrew Zoellner spent his career at a variety of familiar media brands before landing at Fine Homebuilding. He built his editorial career around encouraging audiences to learn how to fix up their homes and make things, including Popular Woodworking, The Family Handyman, Handy, and American Woodworker. When he’s not at his desk or behind (or in front of) a camera, Andrew is flexing his building skills. His 1906 Dutch colonial in Minneapolis is a continual work-in-progress, and he’s gradually bringing some fantastic old-world craftsmanship and previous owners’ DIYs-gone-wrong up to modern energy and performance standards.
|The only thing Fine Homebuilding editorial advisor Mike Guertin likes better than building new homes is remodeling old ones. After 35 years, he’s still challenged every day to find more-efficient ways to build things better. Like a true Rhode Islander, he doesn’t take jobs farther than 15 minutes from his home in East Greenwich. Mike’s written over 100 articles for FHB and appears in dozens of videos.|
