Episode 03 takes a different approach, going on the road to visit an energy modelling expert as well as checking out the first hempcrete house that was built in this region. We had originally intended to finish this episode with the harvesting of hemp fields up in Canterbury, but then the Coronavirus struck.

The majority of this episode was filmed BEFORE the COVID-19 lockdown began, however the ending embraces our new situation with a community-focused approach to being “locked down”.

The Series

The objective is to showcase the twists and turns of creating and managing a sustainable, eco-focused building project, and to help promote the products and practices of the partnering suppliers.

We’ve we’ve been lucky to secure a number of superb partners including Erkhart Construction, Mitre 10 Wanaka, Eurotech Windoors, Abodo, Hemp Farm NZ and Dulux.

We have a total of 20 episodes planned in 2020, taking viewers from the vacant land beginnings right through to the completion of the house (which is just phase one, we can’t tell you about phase two just yet).
