DA Lodged: Annandale Studio

A very exciting DA lodged to Innerwest Council today for a new 'Hempcrete' Granny flat in Annandale.

The building materials selected aim to create an energy efficient and sustainable home that will be exemplary to developments in the local area.

"I look at the range of materials out there and I cannot find one that can match HEMP. I can't find one that has such a low embodied energy, that locks carbon in [and] has such a low environmental impact." - Kevin McCloud
