Need help determining how much Hurd you need?
This is a standard equation you can use to determine how much hemp hurd is needed when making a 12'' thick wall.
Wall x Height of wall = Total square footage.
Take the number and divide by 4.5 to get the total number of 15kg (33lbs) bales you'll need for a 12'' wall.
Average square footage of a house is 2,500 with a 9 foot ceiling (2.7m). less 25% for windows and doors = 1,350 cubic feet.
Now divide 1,350 by 4.5 and that equals the number of bales/bags needed = 300 bales/bags in this case. (9,900lbs)
