In the with a thirty foot wide thirty by thirty pool but it falls into with tropical plants landscaping. Paul trees. It it is very impressive those guys that is done by tropical Paul Paul Clinton Allman. They do a fantastic job it is it they worked very hard there and there. Basically 24 hours each for two days straight. And and that it takes that to do it but but it's a very impressive and it and in. While world that they also do a Fiorina he's pulled cells in there.

He put it it's that the EP puts in place it's OK it's one follow either so realistic look he is the truth is you if you're. Hiking into an appeals it's a waterfall into details yeah it's it's not just some some brick pavers with some water flowed over these art Disney level yes album. Attractions and it's a great analogy because it really is at that level quality yeah it's critical. A tick what we have some might just called in asking about the gun show let's go to Brian hey Brian good morning. Welcome to the home improvement show and your info with me in my boots up. They are good morning to have a simple question about about who looked. Ted appropriate for sure about two votes to ships I'm sure I'm an expert on the gardening but will have summit to show if you'd like to.

The show is a starched decks Friday aid goes from noon to eight and then now on Saturday it's ten to eight and then on Sunday it's ten to six. You remarked you bet. Mike let's talk about some other additional features which we talked about because of the waterfall but you have like seven other. Luminaries have to be fully constructed. Come sit in the chair kicked the tires. Orioles yes absolutely well don't first and when you walk into the shoot into the dome you're gonna see our presenting sponsor Clearwater pools. In an outdoor living in and there are going to have a massive outdoor living area with her embolism pavers and and fireplaces and fire pits and barbecues and I mean and it's going to be setup. Like your back yard and it's going to be several vignettes. They'll have their news. Anything you can imagine. For outdoor living is going to be there because. I thought years ago when when this really started to become a trend. It was it was a feeding trend but it is becoming more and more and more. Popular. The manufactures are coming more products and better products. It really is out Audi Xeon these days. If we live in a climate region in a culture that loves to do lots of cooking life detaining. And outside is really a great place to do that yeah hide it it really isn't Indies living areas are not just. An outdoor kitchen it's not just that there's everything out there from from new televisions outdoor televisions. Complete out Torre entertainment packages that are completely waterproof. It's it's pretty amazing what's out there. It truly is and if you listen this is the time a year to start taken events it it should dreaming about that if you're looking. At some endlessly I wanted to with the latest Chris ideas are all outdoor living. Home means this is the best venue to conceal it because you can actually sit in the chairs you can. Look at the per whose you can walk underneath it. You can look at the rails you can listen to the sound systems. You can looked at televisions it's it's it's all there for that purpose and this is why really really love home and garden shoes. In addition to the outdoor living we have some some content she mentioned the current. Talk about some of the content specifically to the park we've the purple again Clearwater. Outdoor living is is one of our is our main sponsor and they how offered up a 6500. Dollar problem that they'll be giving away and I you bill to get information on official in the that's pretty cool. In mid sixty volatile part of that is as nice that's a nice either parent yeah yes it's a very nice setup that's critical. But in addition to those features. The release of the big pushes technology. Well. You can't get away from the realities and the technology is getting more more analysts say I would say pervasive in our in our lives and in our homes and any more if you're looking to upgrade your home or looking to buy a new home looking to build you have to consider what the new technology is it's out there. And how you're gonna use it in that in the homer in the property and so that being said we've. Over the years it's become a bigger and bigger part of the show because everyone is more interested in and it changes so much every year yes so we're building areas in the show just to highlight in illustrate. The new technologies which can have your your home anywhere from. You hidden speakers you can putting your drywall. Where you drywall right over the speakers you don't even know that there. We've got. That new technology for your door systems in your front door where you can have a video camera. You can. That's that's tied to your your your security pad. Where you Kia and be at work indeed go with the two of remain compute or. If you know your PS driver to a lot of people do. You can let him in your house you can drop package in your hope rather than someone steal that from east. And then you can lock that door again after he walks. It's it's really amazing technology that they have out there. Yet there really is neat. It in today's. Even with teenagers are our young kids come home from school yeah yeah those what Tom opens and you get to be able to monitor that that's critical alumnus he was there common and there's there's all sorts of new sensors out there that. That even on a outdoor when wind you've got citrus for your yard if someone comes in New York. In the old sensors were if you had leaves bull or there was a raccoon running crushing everything one at all. It now the searchers can distinguish the camera and his distinguish between human. And and so it it really has come along way and and the biggest part of that is integrating it altogether. A lot of people get scared of technology because it's okay you gonna have twelve promotes only new kitchen can order. But everything talks to each other in you can do all of this from your phone you can do you can you can run all of this from your phone reform from one remote. And and that is so convenient and and it's not just. A matter of convenience but. When we talk about life safety peace of mind only sings come along with this technology bit. In addition to that portion of it. There's other forms of technology it would be Harlan to show it's such as. Lightning lighting is really big grin lighting is it is is Kabul long wait really. The trend right now is is making your lighting more like a natural. The natural light outside. Because they've done studies where. Force lighting incandescent lighting Q and release her cheer here wellbeing and your health. Gives my greens it can it can really be affects certain people and so. The trend now is to create LED lighting that is more natural. And mimics the outside life. And so will be able to you'll have to see that we've got to really nice to split from humble. Lighting and automation that's coming and they've been there and illustrate we're building an actual structure its bills from all the different lighting. And how it's how it's advanced in in the different. Modes such as you can news. You know there's there's strip plating that you can build new walls that that is run by center so would you. You create pathway and so when you get up in the middle of the night it would get a glass water at the lights turned on as she walked to share. You know in in my age I get a more likable and I will end until after or go to Britain and but. Lighting just from the standpoint of like in inside out of the closet and this is something really big for my wife my daughter who is if you have just read a press colliding. The causes a close look different and of those lighting sooners vs when you go to different light or even outside. So have that natural lighting so that when you're selecting choose those clothes would. And of those a century czar. It is matching and it's the way it's incredible when we're yeah really is being. People kind of take it for granted but it is so important even when your. When you're planning a remodeling your planning to rebuild your girls if you're looking that Todd award that that storm cat owner. That you're looking at in the showroom it's gonna look completely different in your house it really does it even the color of the paint I mean you can take paint chips inside an outsider in the in the office other people called different yeah. So the flooring succumb to the paints the trends of the furniture yeah comics have been waging its very important and in the itself the new year you can't overlook which it really have to consider. How are you won't do that and and also that the size that's one thing that's new issues over the last couple years that the size that Syria. Cam like that you senior average kitchen area original of the group that's that's recessed in your seal yes six inch care they called that's been the standard for so long. That's six and scan you can get a light now that's under two inches double throughout the cinema. Yes for less heat less electricity less better collar belt temperatures. Certain energy savings energy savings so.

I appreciate your patience how can we help you today. Has several members here we're all older stand. All the most of us like an audition war. But they're one member evil should. Super cold it freezes addressed a question. And. She'd like she industry to get to do plan to greet her. And my question ears. I know in the hot shot time. While we're. Skiing in that he. It feels wonderful our. World. Is there is there formula. It's Crist did it turn around in that it's winter time to rest up much oval to. Actually. GA and world. So cold out so it is there a formula toward the jet purchase the between emotional temperature and shut to troops Powell. How will election insulation. Were actually give breached if search. You know they're there really isn't a reform go Lloyd however there is a climate or regional recommendation for insulation. In an air barriers. In order to separate the inside commissions from the outside conditions and that's true whether you're in the heeding those worn the cooling note. So so that being said. Really do the best thing for personal step back at the person in your from the likes it in the fifties is. In this if their summertime. There's a lot of consequences the colder you keep the inside your home compared to outdoors. The worse the building performance. Challenges or the heart of building performance counts is the column because due in our golf solve climate. That have room because he's keeping it so coale compared to the outdoor warm and moist is gonna have some moisture problems since gonna have some building performs problems. Is it well AP conversation saturation in if you have those more sure levels. That high for an extended period Tom which if you think about it. Were run American nations and our climate not the tenements out the year as some years more seniors will be the last. At that you kid start developing organic growth. Or even possibly some Vick case and some runt. So those type differences of indoor and outdoor. Differences in temperature and moisture content economy even more important where you need a I'm very robust insulation. In a very robust. Air barrier in his third control arrow thrown there would be a deeper roots water. So for those spaces that require it large difference of inside and outside temperature. I mean you. You're almost treating it like gay they walked in commercial cooler or one cooler walk and one cool when you get those extreme temperatures. So. You know you talk about it not. Every day day in day out type technology. You know do the approach seems to be specifically for luck commercial one cooler which would be similar to. Hum. Some close cell spray your thing homes. To create that very high or value. And also that paperwork harder to Brooke prevent that water vapor from outside coming in words. And in addition he needs continuous. It. Applications of the air buried the thermal barrier and Rick harder the paper retarded or courts is to work and then you have the window problems to overcome. So you know there's some challenges here we we we have to look at oh lord I wanna talk more about this but it's you know it's hard to do that here and radio. I'm gonna encourage English you know I start a he he correspondents the email. You can actually go to our FaceBook sites Paul's house FaceBook.
