Highland Hemp House, also dba Hemp Dwellings, is a residential renovation project using "hempcrete" to retrofit a mid-century built home in Bellingham. Hempcrete is composed of lime and the stalk of the hemp plant with fibers removed. Packed around conventional studs or infilled between timber frames, this monolithic wall system offers temperature and humidity moderation while it is fireproof, mold retardant, insect and rodent deterrant, achieves healthy air quality and excellent accoustic properties.
With good design and orientation, and some policy changes, hempcrete structures provide the possibility of easily achieved net zero buildings, regenerativly sourced materials, non-toxic living environments, freedom from petrochemicals, and affordable housing.
