Excerpt from Essentials of Hempcrete Construction: Appropriate Use

"This article is an excerpt from Chris Magwood’s new book: Essential Hempcrete Construction: The Complete Step-by-Step Guide. This book is a part of the Sustainable Building Series that New Society Publishers just began this spring! We chose to give you access to Chapter 3: Appropriate Use, because we wanted to give you a guide to deciding whether building with Hempcrete might be best for your project."

"Hempcrete insulation has four common uses in buildings: as wall insulation, roof insulation, sub-slab insulation, and window insulation and trim."

I want to hear all about your experience with hempcrete. What is the best situation you have found it beneficial for?! Do you have pictures of your hempcrete projects?

Interesting that this post hasn't received any responses in 3 years.  
Just put the cards in their christmas stocking and PRESTO! They get it now! It's like you're the harry potter of permaculture.
