Painted lime plastered hempcrete walls

Hempcrete is a carbon negative building material made of hemp fibre and NHL – with the added benefit of being highly insulative and vapour permeable – making it a perfect base for natural lime plaster.

We used lime putty plaster with hemp fibre added for a base coat onto the walls. For the plasterboard ceiling we used blue grit grip coat due to client needing to save money and applied Mike Wyes Heritage Plaster.
