Last night I started reading about hempcrete for natural building. It seems one of the problems with this material is it's availability and cost. I'm wondering if anyone has been following or using this building method and what the future holds for it. There's a small farm in town just up the road (central VT) that just started planting hemp this past year. There apears to be a lot of work involved in the planting, but they're just getting started.
Anyway, I saw this video last night, thought I'd pass it along.

I looked into hempcrete but given its compressive strengths, its R value, the fact you basically have a traditional wood frame construction, the fact that I've not seen anyone run water tests just to see what happens, I decided I'd wait to see all of the data coming out of the wofati at wheaton labs before I considered hempcrete or strawbale..wofati data posts from Jen can be found here
