Lego-Inspired Fireproof Hemp House



A unique home that generates more energy than it uses, is rising above the trees on a hillside property in Sooke, just outside of Victoria.

“We tried to create the most sustainable, safest, most energy-efficient and least toxic home possible,” owner Arno Keinonen said.

The walls are being built using Lego-like building blocks made essentially of hemp, lime and water.
