The Extract travelled to Carlow, Ireland to catch up with Harry Thompson of The Oldbuilders Company and talk hemp and its use as a wall & roof insulator in construction.

Just why this conservation expert recommends natural breathable materials such as hemp wool and hemp-lime to insulate homes and why “there should be incentives to use hemp in building”
From Cloughjordan to France, let’s look at a restoration project in the making, hemp’s starring role in construction, Harry’s passion for preservation and why compatibility is the key.

Hempcrete is a sustainable material which provides insulation and thermal mass. It also regulates temperature and humidity hence makes it a perfect material for building sustainable homes for yourself. The R-value of hempcrete is R-2.1 per inch.

There are some other advantages of hempcrete too:
– It resists fire, mould, and vermin
– It eliminates the need for a vapour barrier and drywall (gypsum) as hempcrete can be well protected with natural lime plasters on the inside and on the outside of the building.
– It is a sustainable building material because it is carbon negative in nature.
