Building a better future

Casey and his guests share so much valuable information in a way everyone, from the contractor to the home buyer and the curious environmentalist, can understand. Casey doesn’t just discuss the how but includes the why- for the planet, for the quality of our lives, for the well-being of our children and the future. Can’t get enough!

A builder on a mission

This has been something on my mind before coming to this show. They are working on the movement of our home environment and this is massively needed. We have so many reasons that we might be in our home, sleeping, eating, spending time with our loved ones and there so many toxins that companies and regulators have overlooked because they think no one cares. Casey takes a proactive approach in educating both owner and builder on why and how we need to start doing it to live a more healthy and happy life. When I get a home built I want it done by someone like Casey.
