The only thing Fine Homebuilding editorial adviser Mike Guertin likes better than building new homes is remodeling old ones. After more than 35 years, he’s still challenged every day to find more-efficient ways to build things better. Like a true Rhode Islander, he doesn’t take jobs farther than 15 minutes from his home in East Greenwich. Mike’s written over 100 articles for JLC Magazine and Fine Homebuilding and appears in dozens of videos.

challenging remodels near his home on Long Island. He is a contributor to

Tools of the Trade, , Mike has been the Frame-to-Finish (Rough) Carpentry
presenter for the Katz Roadshow. He teaches seminars and clinics in all aspects
of carpentry and remodeling and is a regular presenter at JLC Live for the past

on the Road or enjoying his grand children, you might find Mike & his wife
Laura enjoying the countryside on his Harley Davidson.
Rick is the owner of R Arnold and Sons Construction. His introduction to the trades was his 8th grade shop class. As Rick himself states, he didn’t really choose construction. He first went into the military and after that went to college. His college went on strike, so he got a job and never looked back.
