Hemp House: Colorado’s First Hemp House is Officially Being Built
Colorado's first hemp house is currently being built in Lyons. The house is being made with hempcrete, which is a concrete substitute made with local hemp.
Chad Theis from Lyons, Colorado has built a lot of homes, but never from one made out of hemp. He's currently building the first full-size hemp house in Colorado. Chad has been studying hemp and all of the different ways to use it for years. Along with doing construction, Chad is also a CBD supplier too.
To build the hemp house, Chad and his family are using a concrete substitute which is called hempcrete. Hempcrete is a combination of dried hemp chips, water, and lime. Hempcrete is breathable, noise-resistant, pest-resistant, mold-resistant, flood-resistant and fire-resistant according to Longmont Times Call.
