We have been SO EXCITED to bring you all an episode all about electropollution and we were finally able to land author Brandon LaGreca, who joins the show today to discuss his story, his new book and most importantly, how we all can protect ourselves with simple changes we all can make in our daily routines. Pass this one along to your friends ...…
 
You're investigating noxious, unfamiliar odors in your home and need to hire a professional. Where do you go? Who can you trust? All too often, we get suck in "analysis paralysis" and either get recommendations from too many people or we hire someone who claims they can find the problem, but is woefully ignorant of the best testing methods. Tod ...…
 
If you think about all the items that go into a new home build, most people kind of forget about the glues, adhesives and caulks that are used during the build. Caulking around doors and windows, adhesives under the sub flooring, glues for the cabinetry, etc. While the amount of actual material doesn't add up to the volume of paint you would us ...…
 
Jay and Andy get many questions like this on a daily basis, so they thought why not have the discussion on the podcast for all to hear! Do I rip out and replace my cabinets, or can I refinish them? Can I seal the off gassing of my countertop or should I just get something new? Do I remodel my entire home or just start from scratch. There are de ...…
 
I know we spend an exorbitant amount of time discussing things you shouldn't use in your home, so we decided to start talking about the things we do like. First off, Jay and I talk out flooring options for your home. We break down the "green" attributes of various floors like cork, bamboo and wood, we discuss colors and trends, then we top it o ...…
 
Water is essential for life, yet can cause so much destruction. Building a healthy home requires the use of many materials, very few as important as what we'll be discussing today. Etienne Gubler of Siga North America joins us today to discuss how his company's tapes, wraps and membranes can eliminate the destructive element of water intrusion, ...…
 
Jay and I today take a deep dive into the extremely important topic of chemical offgassing. What is it? Where does it come from? How long will this last? What are my choices for dealing with it? Folks, I know that I believe every episode of NTE is important. But this one it at the top of the 'important' list! In my eyes, the elimination of offg ...…
 
If you've ever wondered what Jay and I do for show prep, this episode is basically just that. We talk, laugh, commiserate and come up with ideas. Jay and I were talking earlier this week about some trends in the healthy building industry, and it occurred to us that we should immediately stop talking and jump on the microphones to continue the d ...…
 
Its a common theme with many of our episodes. Jay and I will always remind you to prepare your surfaces, prepare the area, manage your expectations! Let me be honest, folks. Chip and Joanna dont actually remodel a bathroom over a weekend!! It cant happen. It takes planning and lots of it. I recorded an audio article for a magazine a few months ...…
 
Neither Jay nor I can ever admit to "knowing it all". Far from it, in fact. Both of us need to refer to others on a regular basis and of course, we rely on the internet to help. Sometimes we need contact names for specific professionals. Other times...we just need inspiration to get us through a rough day or a difficult project. So when those t ...…
 
This is our monthly episode where Jay and I open up the mailbag and answer listener questions. However, the first half of the show, Jay and I discuss some of the new home projects I'm currently working on and some of the more critical issues that our clients are facing right now. Mold, moisture and more! This is a really good episode and should ...…
 
I know we've done some episodes on our FRAT system before, but there has been quite a bit of activity with formaldehyde testing in the last few weeks and I wanted to share some findings. The average home can have 5,000-15,000 different chemicals in the air at any given time, so I suppose it seems like a drop in the bucket if we eliminated just ...…
 
I imagine you've heard an episode or two of this show, so you may know that we always emphasize surface preparation and testing as keys for a successful project, no matter the task. The surface that a sealer, coating, floor covering, etc, is going on, is called a "substrate" and we will always insist that the substrate is in the proper conditio ...…
 
Absolutely fascinating episode this week, folks. I'll admit...Feng Shui has always been a little too 'woo-woo' for me. And if I had to hear one more TV interior designer say " oh the Feng Shui of this place is horrible...", only to move a chair and say VOILA!.... This topic scared me a but to bring up because I didn't want anyone else to get th ...…
 
As the saying goes, the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and over again, expecting different results. By that definition, the home building industry should definitely be deemed insane. So if we know that typical building methods are dangerous, why do we keep allowing it to happen? Probably because of the cost increas ...…
 
We are definitely in the midst of the construction busy season, so Jay and I are getting lots and lots of great questions coming at us. We decided that one episode per month will be dedicated to answering questions that will help all of our listeners with current projects. We're calling it our Monthly Mailbag Bonanza! This week, we deal with ep ...…

Dagmara invited us to come record our show in front of a live audience so we could interact and answer questions. This episode, we'll hear all about ...…

We also reiterate some of the contractor related questions and advice that earli ...…
 
I promise, I do not talk about these issues to alarm you into hiring me or buying the materials I sell. But I know that sometimes it would seem that way. Honestly, when things like this come up, I have no choice than to fire up the podcast machine and record the words that come out of my mouth without a script. Some recent clients have alerted ...…
 
Jay and I today speak with Michael Borden, who is arguably one of the worlds foremost authorities on the subject of Vastu architecture and construction. From his website: The principles of Vastu science that have been used in designing India’s great and sacred temples can be applied to any building project. Michael has used these principles in ...…

Today, Jay and I are speaking with Dr. Lisa Nagy of the Environmental Health Center of ...…
 
Today's episode is a conversation I had recently with Debra Lynn Dadd. Debra is inarguably the definitive voice in the arena of toxin-free consumer goods, and is someone I look up to and have a deep respect for. I read her first book, Nontoxic & Natural, and it had profound effect on how I proceeded in my business. Over the years, she has autho ...…

Jay and I love all the mail we get from our listeners and clients. So many great questions come our way, that its hard to pick just a few to talk about. This week we tackle some questions that seem to be frequently asked. Please excuse the audio, as Jay was coming to us from a remote location this week. But his words come through crystal clear ...…
 
Before I started this business almost 30 years ago, I enlisted the help of an organization called SCORE. Of course, my mom and dad were the real mentors, as my business was an offshoot of theirs, but the healthy home 'industry' wasn't an industry yet. So I needed some help. As a resource partner of the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), ...…
 
We interviewed Jen Stout from JS2 Partners a while back, just when they got started with their new healthy home construction company. Jay and I thought it would be great idea to get an update from them and learn about their progress and how fast things are taking off for them. Its a casual conversation between friends, but plenty of good inform ...…

Last year I did an episode of NTE where I listed off some of the more common materials used for insulation. Since then, Ive received dozens of emails about brands and versions, etc. So I thought since its currently -25F outside my office right now, this would be a proper time to dig a little deeper into insulation. Ie also been doing a lot of i ...…
 
A client asked me a while back, "what does a day for you really consist of?" Lots of phone calls, emails and face to face customers, for sure. But most of my involves consulting conversations, then tons of research to back up my recommendations. I also get to discuss my recommendations with the contractors and design team for the project, and h ...…

About a year ago, after getting frustrated with my industry for the umpteenth time, I posted a rant on Facebook and used the hashtag LeadnotLEED. Why? Mainly because I wanted to tell professionals in the building industry to become leaders, not just follow the LEED program like lemmings. The LEED program is good for many reasons, but as we've d ...…
 
If you are someone who suffers from chemical sensitivity or allergies, you know how difficult it is to try and describe your situation with someone who just doesn't get it.

I know its a bit cliche to do a show about giving thanks this time of the year, but Jay and I both feel compelled to do so anyway! Obviously, we wouldn't be here without our spouses, family, co-workers and employees, so that all goes with our saying. This episode is all about giving thanks to the early pioneers of our industry, our customers an ...…

I think by now, most people have heard the term 'greenwashing' and know how to recognize it. Greenwashing, simply put, is a method that manufacturers use to make their product sound much more eco-friendly than they really are. They do this so that you feel like you're doing your part for the Earth, even though, you probably aren't. I've decided ...…
