While the tiny building that sits on Pam Bosch’s property isn’t legally a house, it serves as a model for future construction projects. It was built using hempcrete, a cement-like mixture that’s made from combining the inner core of the hemp plant with lime. The result is a cozy space that stays cool even on a hot day. Even though it’s only 120 square feet, the building, affectionately called the “Crow’s Nest,” feels a lot bigger. With a sitting area, lofted bed and plenty of storage space, you would think it was at least 200 square feet. While the Crow’s Nest is a unique sight in Bellingham right now, who knows? Maybe we’ll be seeing more and more of these tiny hemp houses in the future.
