HGTV Personality and Carpenter, Carter Oosterhouse, Joins AAFA, Habitat for Humanity and Merck for Build Smart, Breather Easier Program  to Build Homes with asthma & allergy friendly® Features

As part of Build Smart, Breathe Easier Program, four houses with asthma-healthy features will be built in partnership with low-income families affected by the disease in Metro Atlanta (North Central Georgia), Detroit, Greater Los Angeles and Philadelphia.

To ensure each house is built with asthma-healthy features, AAFA is providing expert guidance on the integration of specific building techniques, materials and systems based on principles from the asthma & allergy friendly® Certification Program. Through the program, AAFA is also providing educational information about asthma, indoor air quality and asthma-healthy homes to help people nationwide try to minimize the impact of asthma on their daily lives. In conjunction, Oosterhouse will lend his expertise for building and outfitting an asthma-healthy home and participate in each of the home builds.
