Nigel F. Maynard, senior editor for residential architect and BUILDER magazines, got his first taste of construction at the age of 14 in St. Croix, but he didn't realize how much he learned until he became an associate editor at Hanley Wood in 1998. Since then, he has made architecture and building products his life—literally. In addition to covering products for residential architect (you may know him as Dr. Spec), he renovates old houses using the knowledge he picks up at work.
