Informational Podcast. Best in its class, guys do a great job and the banter between them is highly entertaining. Kind of guys u could hang out with at the local watering hole. Keep up the great podcast.
Such a great podcast full of good construction knowledge. I love the magazine and this podcast is a must for any tradesman.
I've listened since the lunchbox days and the new crew is a great mix of personalities and experience.
Thank you for offering the âokâ advice and great humor. On a more serious note your podcast has awesome information and I have learn a lot from listening to your opinions and advice. Keep up the good work.
Iâm not one to write negative reviews however back in August I asked a question and was told it would be answered. It has yet to be answered. I sent a follow up email to Mr Fink and he has not responded to that. I feel that if the guys would stop chatting about personal projects and get on with the business of answering real life construction questions it would be more helpful to the construction community.
Great podcast from someone who is an amateur builder. Put on to it by my boss; wonderfully enlightening content by solid group. Entertaining banter.
I really appreciate the the attention given to high performance building.
Im an American expat listening to your podcast in Australia. It very cool to notice building practices in Australia compared to what you talk about in the USA.
This show is my go to podcast as I drive back home on Fridays. These guys always have great questions to answer and do some decent research. I like how they share their own projects and admit that sometimes the FHB way is sometimes too expensive or over the top for the average homeowner. I would give 5 stars but my biggest issue with the show is the change in host . While I enjoy the Patrick and Matthew and their input on tools and projects I really miss Brian and Rob, the chemistry between the three seemed better and much funnier.
Excellent podcast for a dedicated DIYer or anyone interested in construction problems and their solutions.
Since Iâm not a builder, but a homeowner/designer living my own version of âThis old houseâ I appreciate getting objective info on ideas & techniques from pros. Great content, tips, etc...only took one star off because sometimes the conversation strays & has to be lassoed back to topic.
Tuned in a few months ago, thought I was only going to hear million dollar projects where it takes days to hang a door. You guys are real and this hack ( weekend warrior with Habitat) can relate. I like to hear what Iâm doing right, but love to hear that your team has some of the same field issues. Keep it coming! I look forward to each episode. Pete
Love hearing building and remodeling discussed? Must check out fine home building!
Love listening to these guys! Listen to them all the time at work. Have learned alot especially on roof venting since it seems to be the only thing they ever talk about LOL Keep up the great work!
Iâve learned and better understood stuff thanks to this podcast. Funny moments. Great interviews. Great overall. Question... so are log homes one big thermal bridge??
Long winded chatter and incorrect information. Unprofessional.
The podcast is excellent.I am a homeowner and enjoy repairing(usually) and improving our home of 20 years. The builder grade house provides many opportunities for improvement. Thanks, Justin, Brian, Rob, and crew.
Subscribe to these guys, they cover everything and anything and the audio quality is excellent. Theyâre all in the same room, not struggling with Skype or poor phone connections. Iâm now excited to read the FHB magazine as theyâll reference articles there naturally. Really enjoyed interviews with reps at Orlando Trade show...make sure the suits keep up the funding!
Iâve been listening to the Fine Roof Venting podcast since the beginning and have thoroughly enjoyed every one. Just thought Iâd show my appreciation after listening to the 100th episode, during which you guys managed to:a) discuss roof venting, as usual b) debate lighting layout, as usualc) recommend track saws, as usual d) deliver high-octane banter, as usual. Outstanding work. Iâm a professional builder and remodeler, and listening to the FHB podcast is nearly as good as actual in-person trade talk with other professionals.
So, my wife and I have been looking at building a new house, and I thought Iâd try and get caught up on what the newest and latest information is. These guys have helped me change my building plan so much, and so I highly recommend them. Advanced framing techniques was a huge shift in my thoughts on how I would design this house.
The best building podcast Iâve found. Excellent content with both depth and mirth.
Excellent, engaging, informative podcast
I listen to a ton of podcasts and this one is as smart and funny as any of them! If youâre interested in home building or any component of that industry, then you need to tune into Justin, Rob, and Brian each week. Itâs kinda like listening to some guys at a bar talking about work and home projects except the guys happen to be rocket scientists and the bar happens to (probably) be a little closet studio with too many men jammed in! The producers and engineers do a great job with the audio and production value. Justin is a charismatic and entertaining host. Brian hates basements. Rob is The Boss. Couldnât recommend it more! #keepcraftalive.
Great topics but they always âforgetâ that houses have to âbreatheâ. (Sarcasm Justin)
I'm going through the old podcast and working my way up to the current podcast. So far I'm learning some interesting things on every podcast. I like it allot.
These guys know what they're talking about and can really talk about it. I listen to every episode.
Great podcast - I look forward to each episode!
I've been listening to this podcast for a few months now. This is an interesting podcast if you're looking to learn more about building techniques and products and have an edge on your competition in the construction industry. I'm a licensed electrician and as a professional I need to know more about housing than electrical service panel and branch circuits. ALL trades should know about the other trades and here a is where you can learn more than you expected. FHB has been around for a long time and are a huge resource of information.
Great dynamic between the regular hosts, no matter who happens to be sitting in that particular week. As most people have said, you've figured out a balance between really in-depth, insightful discussions and irreverant jaunts down all sorts of rabbit holes and side roads. I've learned a lot and hope to learn a lot more so please keep on truckin!
Love listener questions and updates on their own projects. Feels like they are a couple of guys on my crew. Wish I could weigh in on the discussion topics.
I look forward to your podcast each week and it is a great program. Great content and problem solving case discussions..... Only one suggestion, although it is not because you all are tiring: More guest speakers. Thanks for all you do. Best, Jim
I'm a young architect from nj and I've taken in interest in learning building sciences over the last couple of years so it's interesting to get the guys' take on energy efficiently (even though they're not experts on it). Also, I like hearing from the special guests and what they do/how they do it as I'm starting my own business.
Iâm not a professional builder but love working on my house and talking construction. These guys are very knowledgeable and have useful content. Thanks and keep up the good work!
I have read Fine Homebuilding for years, and regarded it as a staple of current events on the building industry. But listening to the podcast has turned me off to the entire operation. For what I once regarded as the pinnacle of professionalism, I can't believe how unorganized and random this podcast rambles on. The hosts come off as arrogant and unprofessional, and I don't have time to waste on your inside jokes and banter. Taunton needs a podcast representative of their institution!
Great info on building science.
The gents are masters of their craft. Stellar performance, solid advice, and unspeakable talent! Please continue to help me understand the BEST wall assemblies, WRB's, and which of you will finish the projects on your own homes!
If you live in a home build homes or just like houses in general and how they are built for the best way this podcast is for you. Look forward to every Friday.
Love the podcast. Keeps me up to date on building materials and methods. Keep up the great work!
Love this show - I am a first time homebuyer and I'm loving doing all (well, most - that under-road sewer line repair would have been a gnarly first job) of the work on the home.This podcast is great, very entertaining and occasionally informative as well. Generally a good discussion of approaches in a casual setting, which is what I'm looking for. I got an online subscription to the magazine and would highly recommend that as a resource for everything from tools to green building, when you're looking for something specific there is probably an article on it. Search functionality needs some work but overall great content and resources. Thanks guys, and seriously hope you keep the podcast going. It makes my Friday morning commutes on the bus into work much better and I'm on my second time through the episodes listening in the background while working around the house.Hope this was enough information for Rob.Cheers,Chris (Seattle, WA)
Excellent research and insights.
I've been listening since the first episode, and as a DIYer I appreciate the balance the team has between covering a range of topics and digging in deep to work through an issue. There's enough detail that those who know homebuilding can still learn, and the guys make it approachable for those new to the topics. There's a lot of focus on energy efficiency, which is great, but also building tips and best practices. Really worth subscribing to.
A friend told me about this podcast and before I knew it, I'd subscribed to the magazine, enabled a subscription on their website, and spent hours reading GBA. Solid cast with great discussion.
So thankful that there is a resource like this to explore the passion and integrity in the trades. It's been amazing to broaden my knowledge base about all things building while I'm at work or on the road. For all the nerds out there who love the minutiae of things, this podcast is for you (and me).
Big thanks to Fine Homebuilding, and Justin, Rob and Brian, also Patrick! I look forward to this podcast every week now that I am official caught up with all episodes! The podcast is full of rich content that is all searchable with links on the FHB blog, found on their homepage. Amazing! Thank you again guys!
Great mix of advice, experience, and humor pushing us to be more intelligent and efficient
I have learned much and been entertained by the podcast. Helpful hints, good answers to question, and a place of support and community for builders, DIYers, trades, etc.
Love this podcast! As someone who loves to try to stay as up to date as much as possible with building science and craftsmanship this podcast hits all the right notes. It's a great mix of experience, humor, and serious conversation that even my wife enjoys listening to on a weekly basis. That's saying something as we all know how boring talking about building science can be! Keep up the great work guys I love looking forward to the new podcast every week!
Cool discussions! Great way to pass the time on monotonous jobs.
