US Hemp Building Association members at the Members Online Event May 13 voted for the top Hemp House built in the past year.

Five hemp homes built in 2022-2023 were submitted, and all were inspiring and exciting! All of these structures will appear on the USHBA Hemp Structures Map. 

Members voted to award first prize to the Hondo, TX house built by Tim White at Texas Healthy Homes as the top Hemp House built in the past year.

This 2,375 sqft, 2 bedroom, 2 bath home includes hempcrete for all exterior and interior walls.

Builder: Tim White, Texas Healthy Homes. Hemp sourced from: South Bend Industrial Hemp, Great Bend KS.  Wall assembly: Hand-cast hempcrete in outer and inner walls.

“The Hondo house is essentially the benchmark we are aiming for in the building industry. With 2,484 sq ft of usable space, it is a one-story house with a strategically simple design. It features a breezeway between the guest quarters, utility room and the main house which is common vernacular architecture here in the Hill Country.”
