CFCC student builds sustainable doghouse from versatile hempcrete

Leigh Humphries from Wilmington, North Carolina has recently graduated with a degree in Sustainability Technologies from Cape Fear Community College. For her “capstone” project in the vocational program, she created a sustainable doghouse made from versatile building material hempcrete (bio-composite material).

Hempcrete homes are popping up from Kentucky to Alaska and beyond – as this building material has proven benefits and a growing appeal. One of the most appealing features of hempcrete is its vapor permeability, which makes structures breathable. So, this helps in making hempcrete extremely resistant to mold and other health hazards.

Cape Fear’s Sustainability Technologies Program has a dual focus on green energy and sustainable building. She first heard about hempcrete in her Green Building class, which offered a broad overview of various sustainable building materials. Captivated by hempcrete’s potential, she began researching and finding ways that could be used in her final project.

Finally, she made this sustainable doghouse that’s breathable, and offers healthy living option for your furry -friends. Moreover, hempcrete also has no volatile organic compounds, toxic chemicals found in many other, more common building materials.
