Northern Rivers Hemp Cabin

By Ben Convery | Thu 12th Nov 2015 15:47pm

This 48 sqm Hemp cabin in Tintenbar in the Byron Hinterland was an owner builder project. The basic hemp wall installation was completed over 6 days, with 2 days spent setting up and moving the formwork and the remaining 4 days spent packing and tamping the hemp lime material into the forms.

The exterior walls are┬árendered with AHMC’s Hemp lime render tinted with mineral oxides and the internal off form walls, have been sealed with a clear breathable sealant. In the Northern Rivers’ climate where we have good drying days, renders and other natural finishes can be applied 4 weeks after the hemp walls have been installed.
