You've all heard me say that no project ever goes perfectly smooth. Mother Nature can drop 10 inches of rain.  Sub-contractors ignore your request to use the healthier product.  Folks, these things happen all the time. It's not a question of 'what if', its a question of 'when'.  So when the time comes, it requires quick action by the homeowner and/or general contractor to make sure things get back on track.  Jay and I give some current real examples of this and how they got successfully resolved.

Last week, Jay and I talked about some of the more common myths and misconceptions we deal with regularly.  This week, we're focusing on the individuals we would call our influencers...the legends, if you will.  You may have heard of some or many of these folks, but we'll talk about why they were so important to us as we molded our careers.  There you have it...Myths and Legends. Please let us know who your influencers are!

I know I've harped on the topic of internet research before, but this episode takes it much further.  This week, Jay and I discuss many of the myths and fallacies of the green and healthy building process and hopefully, shed some new light on them for you.  We'll talk about plumbing, flooring, VOC's and more.  This was such a fun episode for us and I trust you'll enjoy it as well.

Roofing and waterproofing.  A couple things that Jay and I get asked about regularly, but have yet to address here on the show. Since we're in the throws of a rainy spring, now is a great time to start this discussion.   Whats the best roofing material for your home and is it affordable?  If I'm planning a lower level in my house that will be a livable space, how do I keep it dry?  Great episode for building geeks, for sure!

So often we have clients that are stuck spinning their wheels because of the fear of too many toxins and pollutants.  They use the phrase "what if" when discussing their homes.  What if is has asbestos...what of it has lead...what if it has formaldehyde... Folks, just about every home will has its own set of problems to deal with and these can almost always be remediated and fixed.  Jay and Andy talk about these specific subjects of worry and more on today's show.

If you've been on the fence about building a new home, this is a MUST LISTEN TO episode, folks.  Pete Donovan and Rus Ackner from Healthy Home Builders in New York, talk with Jay and I about their experiences as one of the true pioneers of the industry.  For them, building healthy isn't a fad or a trend...its all they do.  And they do it quite well.  In the market they are in, they typically work on some really high-end projects, but the processes and procedures they've developed are transferable to any sized project.  This episode is chock-full of excellent information, so pass it along to your family and friends.
