So a couple months back I filmed a project out in Philly doing eco-friendly kitchen and bath makeovers for HGTV.  I hosted 20 short episodes covering everything from graywater recycling, bamboo tables, low VOC paints to floor refinishes and backsplash installations.  The clips are now available to view on Ecologue, HGTV’s sister site devoted to everything green.

Here is a list what was featured on each episode

Kitchen –

  • Low VOC Paints
  • Bamboo Kitchen Table
  • Recycling Center
  • Cork Floor
  • Recycled Glass Backsplash
  • Reycled Ceramic Backsplash
  • Paperstone Countertop
  • Cupboard Modification
  • Floor Refinish
  • Salvaged Cupboards


  • AQUS Graywater Recycling System
  • Recycled Ceramic Tile Floor
  • Paperstone Countertop
  • Bathroom Vanity Modification
  • Dual Flush Toilet
  • Hot Water On Demand
  • Bath Fan
  • 3-Form Shower Stall
  • Energy Efficient Window
  • SolaTube

I was super pumped to do this project with HGTV…  We had a lot of creative freedoms to push the envelope of sustainability.  Some of the projects, like the hot water on demand, AQUS Graywater System, and SolaTube install are pretty rockin!… Check ’em out and let me know what you think!
