Come to a workshop and learn about hempcrete

Escher DrawingFirst Permitted Hempcrete Structure in Denver

Hempcrete is said to be one of the best building materials on Earth. Combining the idealistic properties of natural humidity control, a carbon negative footprint and fire, pest and mold resistance; hempcrete makes an excellent building material. If you have ever been interested in learning about this material, we invite you to attend this tiny home hempcrete workshop.

 

What is a hemp construction workshop? We will discuss and learn hands-on about the building material of hempcrete, it’s properties, recipes and best practices for how to properly build a hempcrete tiny home. Starting from a post and beam structure, we will construct a building made from hemp, lime and water.

Why is hempcrete such an awesome building material? The hemp hurd, lime and water bind together to create a breathable, porous structure that gets stronger over time and will withstand against all of Earth’s weather elements. After the Earth-friendly plaster, the hempcrete is rendered fire proof and weather ready.

If you have ever wondered about this material that has been widely popular in Europe and now across the U.S., here is your chance to come learn all the hemp-building knowledge you would need to build your own tiny home! Natural building materials such as hempcrete are catching everyone’s eye!
