Alexx Stuart interviewed two builders a few weeks back. First up, Casey Grey, aka the Conscious Builder. Casey was born to build as demonstrated by a voracious lego habit as a child, a passion for construction and seeing how things fit together, leading to his first job in construction at 17 and his own construction business a few years later. One day asking “WHY?” he realized he wanted to fulfill a bigger purpose than simply building houses for people, but making the experience a conscious, low impact one from start to finish: The Conscious Builder was born and the rest is history. We talk passive house, building materials, renovation vs building pitfalls, and more on today’s show.
