A house built with hemp? Check out this Sebastopol project


Tucked away on a quiet country lane in Sebastopol, a construction crew is building a simple house with sturdy walls and large windows. The only unusual thing about the project is hidden inside the walls. The house is being made with hempcrete, a non-load bearing material made of industrial hemp. “I became familiar with hempcrete because I’m always looking to build in the ‘greenest,’ most sustainable way possible,” said Steve Sheldon, an architect, property developer and builder.
