The super high carbon pollution associated with building construction is choking and baking our planet and will soon lead to irreversible climate damage while toxic plastics are killing our oceans.

Reducing energy consumption, carbon emissions and petroleum derived materials in the construction and operation of buildings is of immense importance.

It feels wrong to use a big array of petrochemically derived materials to build a house intended to reduce energy consumption in order to help the environment.

My preference is to design and build in a way that works to exclude petrochemicals from the building. Hempcrete appears to do this better than any building envelope system that I have found.

We will be starting construction on a number of hempcrete homes in the Hudson Valley in spring of 2021.

Look for our design renderings on this site.

Thank you and stay healthy!
