HempLime building and renovation - Changing the building market from synthetic & hermetically closed, to natural & healthy breathing living spaces.

HempLime Housing solves and minimzes the depletion of non-renewable resources, negative effects of pollution and its effect on human health.

HempLime Housing is providing, safe, comfortable and healthy houses to people using 100% natural materials which and are good for humans and our environment. HempLime is made out of limestone – which is a naturally abundant resource and was used to build ancient Rome (which still stands) – and Hemp – which grows out of the ground. The products are 100% natural, biodegradable and can be used to build an entire house (accompanied by a structure). No synthetics or cement is part of the products (one of the biggest polluters) thus allowing the overall reduction of cement in houses. It is easier than ever for Architects and developers to use the flagship product HES-mix, as it is used for floors, walls and roofs in a single membrane 'mono-wall'. It is a simple system which allows trained contractors to build and renovate houses using only 2 products made with 4 raw materials (hemp hurds, 95-98% pure hydrated lime, HES-plus minerals and water). All products are mixed on the construction site.
