Renovation Bootcamp – Feng Shui – Real, Divine or Both?

Feng Shui practitioners claim that arranging your home according to the principles of Feng Shui can clear blocked energy and help with everything from losing weight, to fixing your relationship or making more money. Host Robin Siegerman a self-proclaimed skeptic says: “I believe in things I can see and touch. It’s very hard for me to believe that moving a piece of furniture can bring you lots more money, because if it was that easy, I’d be on a beach sipping a Mai Tai right now!”

Then along comes Feng Shui practitioner Linda Binns. Robin throws down the gauntlet and challenges Linda to try to change her mind (fully assuming that wouldn’t happen). Robin’s expectations of bells, chanting and woo-woo-wands are expertly dealt with when Linda cites actual, real-life examples of how the principles of Feng Shui have helped her clients with startling results! Linda’s good-natured and practical approach is compelling, but Robin isn’t yet willing to concede her position, so she makes a surprising suggestion and promises to bring proof back to her listeners!

But to keep things grounded, in Robin’s Tip of the Week, Paul Grothouse gives us the scoop on wood counter tops.  They look great, but are they really that practical…?  Are they reliable?  Will the wood swell if near a sink?  Are mildew and germs still an issue with these counters?  And what technological advances have been made to protect the wood–and our investments!–from the elements?  Paul and Robin look at the myths and facts surrounding these fascinating counter tops, and the surprising ways that wood can be used that you would never have imagined!

From demystifying Feng Shui to defining “VOC,” this episode has got it all!

It seems there are more things in heaven and earth than we can envision and two of them are on Renovation Bootcamp!  Tune in!
