Building with Hemp
About the KIT :
Now you can create truly one-of-a kind HempCrete "conversation piece" with our new DIY Kit!
You'll be able to work hands on with hemp therefore allowing more of an understanding as to why this ultra eco-friendly material is used in construction.
WHY HEMP AS A BUILDING MEDIUM?
HempCrete is made from Hemp Hurd, lime based plaster, water and a small amount of hemp meal (used as a silica fume). This is superior to all traditional building materials because it's:
- Carbon Negative
- Flame, water and pest resistant
- Strong, lightweight and breathable
- Lasts 100’s of Years
A ton of HempCrete is estimated to absorb and sequester an additional
~249 kg of CO2 over 100 years.
1 portion of Hemp Hurd
1 portion of lime based Binder
1 portion of Hemp Meal (used as silica fume)
1 wood cast mould
And of course Instructions
- Average HEMPCRETE Brick Dimensions are 12"x6"x6".
