Hemp building blocks! Exciting possibility for our eventual home.

avatar

Well I need to load some more cannabis and write up some of the thoughts I've got running in my head.

Well pretty awesome possibilities here and definitely I'm seeing quite a bit of potential.

This would definitely be a fun project and of course I could start scaling things to even larger projects.

Yep start small and start building a little bit and then prep a little bit larger space next to it and then after that complete a medium sized spot and then after that hopefully I could be looking at a pretty large section.

Sweet well having something that's fireproof is really nice.

As well getting things set up around that entire aquaponics system that I've got going in my brain.

Definitely want to be able to grow massive amounts of food year round.

And it definitely would be really nice to be able to have the thermal insulation from the ground. Definitely excited about that.

Well we are just working on leveraging what we have because if right now theoretically I have enough for one acre of land which would be enough for us to have housing as well as a really big garden...

Well then leveraging that over the course of this next year and doing what we can to blog trade invest and just grow grow...

Well I am sure that we are looking at quite a bit more closer to a goal of being able to afford that acre of land as well as all of the permits as well as then building materials as well as labor is going to be...

I'm not sure I can rely on puppy dog too correctly dig that drain field although he definitely would help dig randomly....

Let alone fencing and then more animals.

Even though I've got an entire zoo in a single dog.

Definitely some interesting idea hemp blocks to build with.

Well if they are so good to build with maybe they might end up being something that I could build on my own after the first little bit. Yep that would definitely be pretty cool.

Getting the plastic inserts wouldn't be that difficult. And maybe it might be cheaper for me to grow my own stems and then just process and get a bunch of lime.

I absolutely agree especially when the majority of all this I can grow process and use my own property.

I actually have a huge amount of stems as a byproduct of growing so this would work perfectly. Might take me quite a while to get enough blocks unless I had some outdoor crops going.

WOW!! That is a very exciting possibility @ganjafarmer! We have only one "legal" hemp farm in SA and they are responsible for all sorts of furniture, clothing and animal fodder but not building supplies - last I heard.

Well that's the amazing part about this entire idea.

And the fact that I would have to undercover grow a massive amount of plants just for enough stalk material.

It is pretty silly the laws that say even hemp is bad on my reservation and that all cannabis growing is illegal.

However I can definitely see myself growing and making a huge home on this kind of building method.

My only problem would be getting enough stem material.

Yeah I always had it build up however if I'm in an area that is illegal every plan I get I pretty much have to chop up and add to one of the building molds ASAP.

However the more that things change the quicker that the laws will as well.

We heard a funny story from the (one and only legal) hemp farmer. He said some thugs got through the security fencing etc one night. They stole plenty of hemp. They tried to smoke it and then had the audacity to come back and threaten lawsuits because the "weed" didn't make them high

I e got a better one... The entire security crew went on a beer run. There's a group of kids parked next to us.

They happen to be discussing how best to Rob this huge marijuana grow.

We just laughed and charged in to buy our supply of beer for the week.

Well we all came out and we are loading all of the beer in.

The kids are still having their conversation. Next up they're going to bring some sticks and somebody's got a stun gun.

We listened in and lined up facing the kids. When we're already I spoke up.

By the way this happens to be the crew that's running security on the crop and the reason why there isn't any fences around is because I got a German Shepherd... He's actually the leader of our security crew we're just here to back the dog up.

You might want to find a different profession kids...

However we're having a party so please show up around 10:00 and let's totally discuss this in the field.

The ironic thing is that field had a huge amount of blood spilled in it over people fighting each other. That entire season and the previous three Crews melted down. And had attacked each other.

We had occasional other individuals trying to sneak in. However they kept trying to enter the field along the road with a bunch of trees on one side. However that ended up being a swamp all season long because of low ground. Which definitely halted any incursions.

However I had a really nice buck deer that would come hang out near our camp until my dog went and barked him away.

Kind of crazy. I kind of miss living out in that field. However only sometimes.

Yep and as well the below grade blocks.

Very exciting technology and very fun to see in action.

Now I just have to figure out where they make hemp sheeting. As well as maybe do some solar panels for the roof?

That's the only issue about this entire thing is the highly toxic solar panels that are not able to be recycled.

Yep yep and yep.

Although I definitely am going to have to put in a bunch of windmills.

It'd be really cool for me to get the house on top of the hill. However when the valley floor gets snow the top of the hill gets drifts.

Well there's definitely a price to pay. And I guess I'm just going to have to pay it.

Hill.. or a stream on your property

Yep I just need flowing water.

Or I just set up a windmill and put in a cistern. I wouldn't get as much electricity as one of the bigger systems but I can use the wind to pump water up. Which actually isn't really that bad.

If I have a decent little stream going through my property this is an excellent option. As well as putting in a little damn and working on putting in some swimming holes.

My biggest situation will be high mountain desert so we don't get a lot of rainfall. We do get it some snow. And all of my roof water is going to be channeled into a gutter system and tanks..

I'm going to need a massive amount of water to get this accomplished. Let alone my dog is part camel so... Yeah he is definitely a heavy drinker of the dihydrogen monoxide.

However if I can get some place that not only has water but also geothermal hot water....

Well yeah that's part of all of it.

But I'm definitely going to have to make a lot more and keep trading....

That is absolutely for sure.

What an exciting time we are living it. And you say we have hemp blocks too! Looks cool tbh.

Actually it looks to be a extremely promising technology.

Even people that cannot build anything with the system can build a pretty big mansion.

My only question is what to use as ceiling and roofing material. Then of course putting solar panels all over the top. Oh yeah!!!!

Definitely going to see if I can't put enough electrical power generation on my property so that I can get paid to generate electricity.

Hemp building blocks of course, and it is about time. Back in the day hemp was illegal because it was seen as a massive competition to the lumber and paper industries, as hemp grows much faster with fewer resources than trees.

Yes and yes.

However now we are looking at a huge possibility for this plant to not only heal us and feed Us. But now being able to house us.

It is sad if you think about it. I have always wanted to believe that the USA is a hero of a country, I even spent 16 years in the Marine Corps.
Now I know it is the lobbyist that spread lies and corruption just for money.

Well hey at least they taught you how to attack tanks with edged weapons!

They definitely instilled a love of The culinary delicacies of crayons.

And bester part!!!!

You got to join a cult that you can never leave. I mean you can actually run away from the Mormon church...

However it is a high honor for you to accomplish being a marine and especially for 16 years.

I'm guessing you're one of the individuals that qualified on iron sites then....
