In the world of modern construction, health often takes a backseat.

Step into the realm of creating sanctuaries where every corner of your home supports your well-being. Today, I'm diving deep into building biology, a paradigm that transcends conventional construction norms to weave together health, ecology, and architectural design.

In this episode, we unravel the tapestry of building biology principles from the ground up with Paula Baker-Laporte. From the foundation to the rooftop to home care and repair, a house built upon building biology principles takes modern toxins, non-native electricity, air, light, and other variables into account for a unique approach to healthy-house building, renovation, and maintenance, including considerations, such as:

  • Frame construction alternatives
  • Thermal, moisture, mold, and mycotoxin control
  • Flooring and finishes
  • Furnishings

Paula is an architect and building biologist living in Ashland, Oregon, specializing in health-enhancing and ecologically sound architectural design and consulting. She has extensive experience applying the principles of building biology to many forms of alternative construction, including light straw-clay adobe, straw-bale, pumice-crete, aerated autoclaved concrete, and wood-insulated concrete forms.

In her role as an architect and consultant, she has successfully assisted many people suffering from multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) in building healthy homes since 1995. She is the primary author of Prescriptions for a Healthy House, co-author with husband Robert Laporte of two books: Econest and The EcoNest Home, and contributing author to several other publications. In addition to writing Prescriptions for a Healthy House: A Practical Guide for Architects, Builders, and Homeowners, Paula penned The EcoNest Home: Designing and Building a Light Straw Clay House and EcoNest: Creating Sustainable Sanctuaries of Clay, Straw, and Timber.

This podcast — perfect for architects, designers, contractors, medical professionals, and homeowners alike — will serve as a unique guide to creating healthy indoor and outdoor spaces, including many new resources, as well as specialized knowledge from an internationally recognized expert in building biology.
