Hemp is turning a new leaf in Taranaki, with a house made of the marijuana-like plant featuring on tonight’s Grand Designs NZ.

New Plymouth couple Greg Whitham and Gayle Avery wanted to build a rustic French farmhouse-style home for their extended family – and they wanted to do this using hemp.

But being one of the first hemp homes in New Zealand presented numerous challenges, with the results revealed on tonight’s episode of the hit TV3 series.
