As the daughter of a carpenter and an English teacher, Jenn has been honing her love for woodworking and writing her entire life. After nearly a decade as a writer and producer for This Old House, she bought her first home in rural New England and launched her blog, Build Basic.

Since then Jenn has also rejoined the This Old House family as the editor of House One, and now their in-house DIY Expert sharing easy woodworking and home improvement projects.
