As we move into the second half of 2019, it seems as though the industrial hemp industry is gaining serious momentum. On this week’s episode, join Drew and Cameron for a trip into New York City for the Cannabis World Congress and Business expo, where we will be displaying a project we have been working on for the last six months.
The Hemp House on Wheels was designed by Anastasiya Konopitskya, Drew’s wife and an accomplished architect and designer. This project served to temper our focus in what can be an overwhelming sea of hemp related opportunities. It is constructed out of hempcrete, a biocomposite insulation comprised of hemp hurd, lime binder and water. Our Hemp House on Wheels is finished with a three coat lime plaster system provided by our friends at DeGreuchy’s LimeWorks in Telford, PA.
Our intention behind building this project was to create a model, for display, of hempcrete construction that showcases the potential for designing and building with the material. We formed a joint venture between our companies to offer full design/build services in hempcrete construction; Ana and Drew of Coexist Build and Cameron, with Americhanvre.
Our appearance at the CWCB Expo came at the invitation of the National Hemp Association and the Hemp Industry Park, and the entire experience has been unbelievable. Listen in to hear about our journey to make it to the CWCB Expo and for some colorful New York character’s we met along the way!
