Fine Homebuilding Through the Years
Join us as we reflect on 40 years of making a home-building magazine, from the cover photography to the content of the articles inside.
To celebrate Fine Homebuilding‘s 40th anniversary, we’re taking a look back at old issues of the magazine and sharing our insights about the articles and images that have appeared on the cover and in the pages over the years—plus celebrating the dedicated editors, artists, writers, photographers, designers, and tradespeople who contributed to them.
We’re look at each year in order, beginning in 1981, so keep checking back for updates as we add more highlights from the formative years of Fine Homebuilding magazine.
