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.

While I normally leave the nutrition-related podcasting to others, 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.

Oh boy do I love this time of year.  You can feel the cooler weather starting to make its way in.  Leaves are beginning to change. What stays consistent, however, is the amount of calls and emails we get asking us questions about healthy home projects.  Today, we're tackling some of those questions and I'm pretty sure at least one of two of them will be regarding subjects on your mind as well.  Thanks for listening!

Even though I'm a trusted healthy home consultant and materials expert, I could never say that I know it all.  When I'm stumped on a project, Caroline is one of my go-to experts.  We've had the pleasure of working together on projects over the years and it's about time we had the chance to put one of our conversations on record and share it with the world. Today we'll hear about her successful testing and mitigation business, along with some exciting new air purification equipment she is pioneering.

Non Toxic Environments Home Health & Wellness

A few years back when we started the podcast, Jay and I both did an intro episode to give you all a little background.  In these last years, we've gained thousands of new listeners and I get several emails a week asking about how I ended up in this business.  So, this may be a refresher course to some, but it should be enlightening to all.  The history of healthy home building with Andrew Pace.

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.

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.
