Hello everyone, this is my first post here..  I just wanted to share some new hempcrete blocks that I ran across.. I am not connected in any way to this company and I know other companies are working on their own versions of this idea already but these are very sweet blocks..  If I build a new home or an addition someday this is what I am going to use. Years ago I was into the idea of straw-bale building and dome houses and earth ships etc..

I am thinking of moving to Ecuador soon to retire early and if I have to build there, these blocks are going to be my way of building.  I want to buy a small fruit farm in Ecuador and live out my days growing food and making music in my studio..

it looks like i would have to buy the bricks from the company.  not that a lot of hemp is available locally this seems a shame.
