The Hempstead Caretaker's Cottage

The Hempstead Caretaker's Cottage

The Caretakers Cottage at the Hempstead is a hempcrete retrofit project where we gutted and prepped a one hundred year old tool shed to become a living space for guests at the bed and breakfast. Retrofitting an aging structure presents challenges that, once overcome, only sweeten the reward for persevering through the project. Hempcrete for this project was installed as part of a workshop series called Hempcrete Week that occurred at the Hempstead. This work in progress will be completed in early 2021 with a half round bathroom addition to be styled like a silo and insulated with hempcrete.
