Raised in rural Alabama, Rodney Diaz was never a shrimp-boat captain or a college football All-American. But he did spend one long, hot summer hanging iron across the South with a crew of ne’er-do-wells, sparking an interest in building that ultimately led to a gig as Fine Homebuilding’s deputy art director. When not shuttling his kids to Scouts, sports, and school, Rodney spends his free time renovating a 1942 Cape.
