Yikes – Fall temps seem to have set in literally overnight. Brrrr. Ahh – but here inside the Nauhaus, with its amply thick Hempcrete walls along with a multitude of insulating tricks, it’s quite toasty — all without the benefit of any heat source (other than a few carbon life forms).

Here we see that while it is a brisk 43 F outside, it remains 69 F inside (along with 62% humidity).

We’ll continue to check back on how these temp variations track over the coming winter months…
