‘Highland Hemp House’ goes up in Bellingham

‘Highland Hemp House’ goes up in Bellingham

A three-story house is under construction in Bellingham, and crews are using hemp to build it.

“I needed to renovate my house and I’m concerned about the environment and healthy living. About five years ago, I started to investigate and I learned about ‘hempcrete.’ It’s insulating, it moderates humidity, it’s renewable, it’s recyclable, it’s regenerative,” said homeowner Pam Bosch.

Bosch’s house, the so-called Highland Hemp House, has become a staging ground for hemp activists and lawmakers who want to cut the red tape surrounding the building material.
