Homeowners can learn a lot from this podcast
I own a historic home that we are slowly renovating and have been doing my homework—it’s a significant architectural home in our area and I don’t want to screw it up! I kept coming across Brent and Richard’s work during my research on historic mouldings and building materials, and found this podcast through that. It is giving me the knowledge and tools to go into conversations with my builder and architect more confident in the decisions I’m making, which are often more costly, but worth it for the level of quality and longevity.
Brent’s statement in the state of craft episode this week, that unhoused people end up without a roof over their head because they expected society to buy their groceries (come on man, no) *really* bothered me, and I did want to share that feedback. Your point that (American) society has come to value convenience, artificially low prices, and speed more than craft and quality in most things was more grounded in reality.
Anyway, thanks for the education on historic building means and materials. I’m one homeowner who’s here for it.
Really great listen for the most part. Why are Beavis and Butt-head on here though?
