BUILDING WITH HEMP
2005 p/b
Steve Allin

These are the opening sentences in the introduction to this book by Steve Allin
"In this book I will describe how to use materials derived from the hemp plant, however I must get certain things clear from the outset. You cannot smoke the house or see the joints in the wall" - Wonderful!
This is a super book and all you will need to know about building with hemp. The author takes us through the subject step by step, beginning with the hemp plant, its history, agriculture and processing, how the of mixing the hemp-wood with lime was conceived and how it was developed into the material now known as hempcrete. The insulation and heat storing qualities of this material is the answer to some requirements for making a healthier way to construct and live in such a home.

Everything is covered in this book. From design, renovating, hemp plaster, finishes, hemp fibre & other materials right through to "how to" This part of the book covers all there is to know about building such a house right down to the electricity, plumbing do's and don't's.

It includes 295 colour photographs (which are bright, cheerful and inspirational) plus many illustrations and diagrams.
