Please help, my is off gassing!
One of the most frequent calls we get. My walls, my carpet, my cabinetry is off gassing...what do I do??? Today, Jay and I tackle that question and discuss what off gassing really is and how to deal with it. Plus, I take a little time to talk about why I LOVE doing what I do and helping people with their healthy home dreams.
Healthy home building...post pandemic
Jay and I always appreciate the opportunity to talk with Jen and Rusty Stout from JS2 Partners about their business. On this episode, we'll find out how the pandemic has affected construction times, as well as helped their clients focus on what's most important. Lots of exciting news from them, so please enjoy the show!
Independence Day 2021
Seems a whole lot different than a year ago, thats for sure! As the word starts to open up again, Id like to take a few minutes to let you know what's happening with material availability and pricing. Also an exciting new offering in the world of spray foam insulation.
Non-Toxic Closet Systems
Many years ago, our local builders association constructed a model "green" home that achieved LEED Platinum status. I walked in to inspect it and had to walk out minutes later due to the offgassing coming primarily from the closet shelving systems. Since then, I've been on a quest to find the perfect system. Well, here it is!! Today I talk with Rob Norden, CEO of Lundia USA, who has developed the healthiest system I've ever seen.
An interview with Michael Frerking, Living Systems Architecture
Stick frame, ICF, rammed earth, net zero..... what does it all amount to when you are building a new home or doing a major remodel.... one that has to be healthy, sustainable and light on the earth?
In today's episode of NTE, Jay Watts interviews architect Michael Frerking of Living Systems Architecture. Michael has perfected the construction technique know as poured earth. If you aren't familiar with earthen construction and its many benefits, this episode will literally "ground" you in the basics.
Woo boy it has been a while since Jay and I have been behind the NTE microphones. So glad to be back! Today we discuss some project updates, material pricing and take a few listener questions. Thanks for joining us!!
