Asheville’s latest hemp house breaks ground!

Woodfin, NC –
This week, Alembic Studio’s latest, and biggest project, ‘Sky Orchard’ broke ground, just in time for Hemp History Week! This new Hempstead flew through the permitting process, and now the foundation work has begun.

This home will feature hempcrete walls in most of its rooms, plus compressed earth blocks made on-site. The roof will be a SIPS system. The landscape plan includes permaculture design and a greenhouse. We look forward to seeing how this project turns out!

Here are some artist’s renderings of what the house will look like. Site photos coming soon!
