Tempted to Build Your Own Low-EMF Home? Here’s What You Should Know

The Ideal Way to Build in EMF Protection

If you are contemplating building your own home, you naturally have the ideal opportunity to build in all the necessary EMF protection and other healthy living features that you need. No wonder that a growing number of people are turning to building their own homes, when no amount of EMF remediation of an existing structure can provide the advantages of the lowest possible EMF living environment as building a home from square one.

But beware – there is a learning curve. Green Building does not infer healthy building, nor does it infer EMF protection. And all healthy home builders are not created equal.

That is where these two books by former aerospace engineer, Daniel Stih, pay for themselves over and over again, giving you benefit of building and handyman experience from one who has been-there done-that and succeeded:

  • How to Build a Healthy Home: Prevent the Negative Impacts on Your Health that can Result from Poorly Executing Green Building Initiatives
  • What Your Builder Should Know: Best Practices for Building a Healthy Home (2019)

Green means environmentally friendly and energy efficient building practices. It’s nice to think about the environment and reducing energy consumption, but not at the expense of your family’s health! Your house should be the safest, healthiest place for your family and you to be.

The How-to-Build book guides the reader through the jungle of green building codes and product labels, explaining how to pick and choose the ones to create a healthy home. You will learn which products and materials to avoid and how to choose healthy.

Paired with its companion book, you will have all the clear direction and information you need give your contractor, handyman, or electrician, since each step in the building process includes a summary and a handout to “Give This to Your Builder”, and then guides you on how to inspect the builder’s work and what to look for.

Before you start on the very important venture of building your own home, specifically for health and EMF protection, you will want to become well informed. You’ll begin with understanding healthy building materials and healthy building practices, working up to understanding how to guide your contractors to ensure they are building, or rebuilding, your home in the healthiest manner possible.

These books are so full of straightforward ideas about how to build a healthy house it should be required reading for all building professionals, especially those that are “green”. For example, what a time-and-money-saver and pitfall-avoider it is to find out how to flash windows with readily available non toxic product alternatives, like Densarmour Plus.

Or what electrical metal tubing to use for an underground conduit that entirely eliminates EMF fields. Or how to talk “electrician-speak” when telling your electrician the goal of the electrical rough-in is to keep the wires paired to prevent unbalanced current.

At any stage in your low-EMF home building project, EMF Expert Consultants are happy to assist you directly, or work with your contractor or subcontractors. Look for an EMF Expert Consultant listed in the EMF Professional Directory who notes a home building specialty in his/her description of EMF services, and contact him/her with your request.

EMF Consultants receive requests frequently, and the number of requests is rapidly growing as more people are pulling up stakes where they live in a rising 5G exposure situation and heading to a lower EMF location to build a home where they have more control over their electrosmog exposure and their other environmental pollutants.

Phone consultations, with a qualified EMF Consultant can be tremendously helpful for understanding, identifying, locating and instructing in the application and use of building materials that will give you the EMF protection you need. Whether an entire home building project involving building contractors, or a small DYI project around the house, phone consultations are a convenient way to keep your project from getting stuck, and to avoid wasting money.
