I simply love this magazine and even have a paid subscription to show for it. But, nothing beats a free FHB article that you an use to solve your DIY problems.
While looking for some DIY ductwork information, I found a website called Chief Architect (Click here for the link that has 25 FHB articles.
Maybe ChiefArchitect has some sort of a licensing agreement with Fine Home Building to make these articles available for free?
Anyway, although most of the articles are somewhat dated (say back from 2005-2008), they are as still relevant today as it was back then. So find yourself a comfy seat and head on over and get some reading done!
