Hemp, Lime and Water

Hempcrete or "hemplime" is a lightweight fiber reinforced insulation/infill construction material.  Hempcrete is the combination of lime based binders, hemp core fiber (hurd), and water.  When used as a building material Hempcrete is highly thermal, fire, pest, and mold resistant with natural humidity and temperature regulating properties.  Building with Hempcrete creates a healthier living environment with flexible design options.

The Hemp Building Company is a sustainable building, contractor oriented, material supply and service company.  We aim to use hemp to build “healthy homes” in an affordable manner. We primarily use a formulation of lime based binder and hemp as an insulation and infill method.  After we insulate the buildings with Hempcrete, we apply a Hemplime render to create a permeable finish on the walls. We also are very determined to educate people about the benefits of using Hempcrete as a building material.  As we focus to build our company, we are creating a supply chain to be able to source and supply “grade A” material at the lowest price point possible.  Through our partnerships we are developing American industrial hemp processing capabilities and helping farmers to grow, process and sell their material.
