Everyone Deserves a Roof...A Hopeful Chat For The Holidays
This holiday season, we are still struggling with the pandemic, shipping issues all over the world and now horrific damage and the loss of lives from the storms across America's heartland. But for most of us, we'll never have to worry about where we are sleeping tonight. However, there are many Americans who have no home, no shelter. This is a truly heart-warming episode you need to share with others. We are so happy that Jay was able to land this interview and have Peter share his vision with us all.
Peter Samuelson from Everyone Deserves A Roof
Every once in a while, we'll be on a project where we need to come up with a creative fix. Using a product in a new way...one which the manufacturer never really intended it to be used. We call these 'off-label uses'. There are many we developed over the years and Jay and I had a chance to discuss a few of them today.
What are we thankful for in 2021?
Sure, we've got plenty to complain about. Material shortages, price increases, yada yada. But as we say every year, we just have so much more to be thankful for. Jay and I are back in the saddle today to discus that, as well as why 2022 is shaping up to be the best, healthiest year yet!!
Tim Masters, Healthy Mattress Maker
We preach all about healthy building and making the bedrooms the healthiest rooms in the home. So its time to talk about mattresses. Tim Masters, owner of My Green Mattress in Illinois, has been in the mattress making business his entire life. While they have always used high quality materials, the switch to organic and chemical free was the result of a personal family crises. I met with Tim at his manufacturing facility recently to discuss his story and how now it benefits all of his customers.
Healthy Home Build...In Their Own Words
Building a home is a massive challenge for most. Now, adding to this that you want to build it healthy and the challenge just increased by double. But is it really that difficult? It certainly doesn't have to be. On today's show, Andy speaks with one of his past consulting clients to get her take on how the healthy building process went and whether or not she believes that it was worth the commitment.
Health Hero, Tim James
While I normally leave the nutrition-related podcasting to my friends Robyn Openshaw, Ashley James and Katie Wells, this was one episode that Jay and I HAD to do. Tim James has an eye-opening story to tell and beyond that, an incredible gift to share with everyone. The gift of personal health. Tim does private and group session health coaching, and has created his own line of personal supplements and detox products that lend themselves perfectly to those of us trying to get rid of the toxins we are exposed to every day. Plus, he's like Mr Energy. Just listen!!

The experience, knowledge, and well-presented information that I gain from this podcast are invaluable. I’m so appreciative that Andrew and Jay take the time to discuss ways to have healthy home. Everything in the conventional building world is focused on energy savings and LEED certification. Unfortunately that doesn’t equal non toxic! As a “canary” I refer often to this duo and to Green Design Center for my home building and remodeling projects. Thank you!
Absolutely best educated advice
Andy and Jay really are informative and years of experience to help share - to help people make Informed choices for their home and health. I love the podcast and the flow and harmony of the exchange of knowledgeable conversations they have with each other. Thanks Andy and Jay , it’s always appreciated
I had been following Andy and Jay for about a year and my husband has been buying AFM safecoat since 2008 and has been in contact with Jay back then.(found this out recently)
I have learned soooo much from this podcast that when our ADU build had a big change - I had to sign up for Andy’s consultations.. it’s easier to understand his recommendations knowing what I know from listening to his podcast and understanding the pathophysiology of allergies and sensitivities
Please keep up the good work that you guys do!
