Old World Inspired Kitchen.

                    This might just be the perfect kitchen for me, I just cannot stop looking at it.  The only thing I can find that I would change is the way the door swings on the fridge.  Enjoy, Heidi

Houses that ROCK!

High ceilings, exposed wood beams, enormous windows flooding the room with natural light and the bare stone walls.  Yep, it gets me every single time.  Enjoy, Heidi

The House made of Hemp.

This is perfect, I can build my story book dream house with 100% sustainable matierials.  It has come full circle, what was the old fashioned way of building is now the new alternative. 

Hemp lime renovation

 Hemp can be made into any building material, including fiberboard, roofing, flooring, wallboard, caulking, cement, paint, paneling, particleboard, plaster, plywood, reinforced concrete, insulation, insulation panels, spray-on insulation, concrete pipes, bricks, and biodegradable plastic composites which are tougher than steel.  I know, too good to be true.  It is all true. 
                       The following video is about a  house in North Carolina built with Hempcrete.
                                                          Via:  CNN        By:  Push Design

In the next video you can see the process from the field to the construction of a Hemp House.

Hemp foundation walls are 7 times stronger than concrete foundations, half as light, and three times as elastic, which means that these building will bend, but not break. Because of their superior strength and flexibility, hemp foundations are resistant to stress-induced cracking and breaking.

Then there is Hemp Plastic.  It is lighter than steel and is 10 times more resistant to denting.
Watch Henry Ford demonstrate this on his Plastic Hemp Car he made in 1941.

                                                         Found on Hemp Plastic
Being made of Hemp and water, it seems like Hemp Plastic would be a solution to the plastic plague our world is suffering from?  I didn't even mention the thousands of other uses, like food, fuel, clothing, paper and medicine.  And if by chance you are wondering why we don't use this fast growing plant that grows almost anywhere and requires zero pesticides, herbicides and very little fertilizer?  Just think of who it's competition is, Chemical, Pharmaceutical, Timber, Steele, Cotton, Coal and Oil companies.
   Just remember, vote with your dollar.  
 We are the mass consumers of the world so we need to be responsible and buy products that are good for our Earth.  Educate yourself, do some research.  Industrial Hemp can be grown without the THC chemical.    Thanks for your time.  Heidi

Be the change you wish to see in the world.

The story of the Sunny Little Beach House.

Once upon a time there was a  little beach house that was cheery and full of sunshine.  Families would go there to escape their hectic lives, relax and recharge.  Every inch of the house was comfortable and eclectic, with varying textures and neutrals and bursts of yellows.  The owner of the house likes it because at the moment she likes a bit of yellow, last year it was turquoise and perhaps next year it will be amethyst.  It doesn't matter because all she has to do is change out the linens, some art work and re-paint the doors, a couple chairs and bath tub.  Clever girl, that owner.
Enjoy, Heidi
