    A deep dive into understanding smart home technology and how to make this a DIY project. 8 1 2020

    Smart Home tech makes a ton of people nervous... maybe its not understanding its security or lack of understanding about how it all works. I bring in Mike Duncan from Comcast/Xfinity who fully understands how all of these things work together. This is no commercial content here as I just have brought in a leading expert so that we can talk in easy to understand terms of how you can save money, save energy, and give yourself added security by adding a few smart home systems to your home. From stopping a water leak to not ever having to touch a light switch there are some basics to some more complex systems that can really help you out around your house.

    $11,000 Ransom on a building permit? Plus 8 things that are dirtier than your toilet 8 1 2020

    I couldn't believe it either. In Seattle they have a (yes this is what they call it) "Housing Affordability" law that forces homeowners to pay this fee on a building permit. We will talk with the Institute for Justice about how they are trying to help out the homeowners by fighting back on this expensive fee for a remodel. A special thanks to Bill Maurer for coming on the show today. For more information about this and the Institute for Justice head to : https://ij.org/press-release/seattle-housing-affordability-law-forces-hard-working-homeowners-to-pay-ransom-for-building-permit-now-two-residents-are-fighting-back/ (https://ij.org/press-release/seattle-housing-affordability-law-forces-hard-working-homeowners-to-pay-ransom-for-building-permit-now-two-residents-are-fighting-back/)


    We will also be talking about 8 everyday things that are dirtier than a toilet....This might make you clean a few things just a little more around your house.


    All that and so much more on this weeks Around the House with Eric G

    What do outdoor projects typically cost and Healthy Homes with Caroline Blazovsky 7 25 2020

    What do outdoor projects typically cost and Healthy Homes with Caroline Blazovsky 7 25 2020

    We dive into what some of those outdoor projects cost. A wood deck compared to a composite deck. What is the return back to your house as far as value goes? You might be surprised as what might have given you a 120% value about five years ago might only be 66% now as styles change.


    Then later in the show I share up a couple of excerpts from my live video this week with Caroline Blazovsky, America's Healthy Home Expert. There is one thing you might be doing in your home that makes your house air so dirty...it has the same particulate matter in your air than outside in a major city in India. You wont want to miss this episode of Around the House with Eric G. For more information about Caroline you can find her at https://www.healthyhomeexpert.com/ (https://www.healthyhomeexpert.com/)
