MOhemp Kenya: Carbon Credit Sales Support Philanthropy: For those who are wondering how a startup agriculture business of MOhemp Kenya can afford to spend  $2,249,002  dollars on the Philanthropy... For those who are wondering how a startup agriculture business of MOhemp Kenya can afford to spend $2,249,002 dollars on the Philanthropy activities that do not affect the bottom line of the company. I am proud to announce that Carbon Credit Sales are used to support the philanthropic activities! What a great use for those whom are needing to offset the carbon they produce! MOhemp Kenya will put the dollars to work in helping the local community. MOhemp Kenya total Carbon Credits are estimated at $4,498,004.. The Carbon Credits generated will be split 50/50 with the future Investor who helps to fund the Agriculture Startup! Carbon Credits Support Philanthropic Activities-Community Outreach, Education, Research MOhemp Kenya Philanthropic Activities supported by Carbon Credit Sales In addition to the Carbon Credit Bonus for the Lender or whomever helps assist MOhemp Kenya receiving the funding needed, we have built in a: Goodwill Payment of $59,858 a year for four years! MOhemp Kenya is thinking long term income potential and the Founders will sacrifice a portion of their future salaries to help get the ball rolling on the Agriculture Startup. Investor Information Packet is ready for viewing. Investor packet contains details on repayment of the $2M investment in 4 years- total cash repayment of $3,098,000 that when combined with the $2,249,002 Carbon Creditstotals: $5,347,002. Not a bad ROI on the original $2M business startup costs.

Home Fire Repair and Remodel

The following photos are images from the job site, highlighting areas that the prior weatherization crews missed -when they were insulating this building.  

The missing insulation in critical areas causes greater energy needs - adding to the carbon footprint of this home.

The Hemp Insulation Solutions to Thermal Bridging
Industrial Hemp Insulation stops thermal bridging!
Industrial Hemp Insulation stops thermal bridging!


Fire repair, gut rehab- property was one of the most insulated buildings I've worked on in StLouis (that wasn't mine). The prior so called "energy experts" who installed all the insulation, missed insulting the spots most needed.
In this home's lower floor is where a garage and storage rooms are located. There are two giant heat traps one of which extends thru the home to the roof area- the chimney & The other heat sink is the metal post and beam system that supports the second floor;floor.
Heat and cold transfer thru denser materials faster and more efficiently that a porous substance.
All the second floor boards are supported by this heat sink. This allows the heat and cold a way into the building thru conduction- thermal conductivity.
The homes chimney is also located in the coldest part of the home and thermally conducts all the absorbed heat & cold into the second floor.
To stop the thermal conductivity- building owner should insulate both of these areas and stop the heat or cold from ever reaching the heat sinks. By wrapping the chimney & metal it will never get cold or hot eliminating thermal conductivity.

Open Source Design Build Drawings- Under Stair Movable Storage Unit Plan


I was asked to design and build customstorage units for underneath a set of basementstairs.  

Here are the Design Build Drawings in the following slide show presentation.  Give it a minute to load, the controls are in the lower left, if you have questions, comments, or complaint use the contact form and someone will address your concern.



Design Build Drawings-

Under Stair Movable Storage

Under Stair Movable Storage Plan

    Design Issues Solved by enabling the 3 storage units to move independently.  

    Allowing the Movable Storage Units to be completely removed from the space- gives all the needed room for future cleaning and inspections.

    The added benefit of having movable storage units in a basement type setting- where water is known to cause damage to things left directly on the floor.  With the Movable Storage Units- the size and height of the caster wheels chosen will determine the bottom shelf height distance off the floor- 2 inches or greater.

    This provides Safety to your items in Storage for low water basement flooding issues.

    DIY Suggestions
    • Be careful in choosing the height of the Caster Wheels.  
    • Too tall of wheels will cause a "Tip Hazard" of Movable Storage Unit.
    • Width of wheel is determine by floor covering- example carpet wide wheel, concrete narrow wheel.
    • Always store heavier items on lowest shelf.
    Grand Total of: 120,960 cu in  (4,480 cu ft) Minimum Storage Space created with the Movable Storage Units 


    Small:     20,160 cu in
    Medium: 40,320 cu in
    Large:     60,480 cu in


    This is like having the storage capabilities of a second kitchen.
