Debra Judge Silber attributes her appreciation for building to her father, a one-time carpenter and handyman who didn’t think twice about engaging his only daughter in scraping paint, hauling sand, and other glamorous tasks. Now managing editor at Fine Homebuilding, Deb continues the family tradition by pressing her husband, son, and two daughters into work on their Connecticut home. Deb relaxes by working on an MFA in fiction.
