The 5 best things about making houses out of HEMP!
#1/ With 4 acres of Industrial Hemp you can build an entire house, inside and outside. This includes matts curtains etc. It will only take four months to mature and ready for harvesting.
#2/ to make hempcrete they use the fibre strands of the plant, which is the strongest of all plants. It gets mixed with water and lime. Over time the fibre and the lime petrifies. (The longer you leave it, the harder it gets, not like cement, as cement cracks and slowly deteriorates overtime.
#3/ Hempcrete is 100% natural and because the walls can breathe, it is a natural insulator. In winter it helps keep your house warm and in summer helps keep it cool, saving money on energy costs.
#4/ Hempcrete is also lighter, stronger than cement and is also fire resistant.
#5/ Hempcrete is termite resistant.
