Albany, New York-based eco-friendly architectural practice Green Built has gone ahead and built an exceptionally well designed tiny hemp home as part of an effort to bring cannabis construction into the mainstream architecture scene in the USA.

What's great about this tiny hemp home is the fact that it makes use of a building material that is absolutely sustainable, solid, reliable and safe. To be more specific, Green Built made use of a material called Hempcrete which is essentially a mixture of hemp, lime and water to construct this tiny hemp house. The home will comprise 50 square meters of floorspace that will be split between a living room, master bedroom, deck, kitchen, foyer and bathroom.

Ultimately, this tiny hemp home shows how hemp needs to be embraced in architecture due to its great properties.
