Fine Homebuilding No. 188 - Review

FH_188.jpgTaunton delivers another good issue of Fine Homebuilding this month. There’s a vague spring/summer feel to things with articles on customizing decks, creating stone steps, and a low risk way to reroof. There are also solid articles on SIPs (structural insulated panels), framing for a garage door, and building a paneled passageway.

In addition to all this good stuff, what we liked best about this issue is the article on undersink plumbing. It’s likely that your current plumbing is ill-conceived and prone to problems. This article isolates the issues at hand and gives a clear way to redo things to head off the multitude of problems that are just waiting to occur.

Keep reading to find out what tools were covered in this issue.

The tool news and reviews sections of this issue are pretty light, but there is one nice article on tool- triggered shop vacs. The best value award goes to the Fein Turbo IIand the best overall going to the Festool Cleantec.
