Cardboard Houses


Cardboard Houses
I’d never of thought you could build a multi-story house out of cardboard but that’s exactly what Col James of Stutchbury and Pape architects has done. It just goes to show what can be achieved when you think outside the box :).

The cardboard house will come in a kit (imagine what you can make with the packaging) and is made up of 100% recycled goods, the majority of which being cardboard. The leads to a very cheap and environmentally friendly house. I can see houses like this being really useful in times of dire need as a mean of emergency accommodation.

Inside Cardboard House
The house is obviously water proof (who wants to live in a soggy mulch), and cleverly stores water in bladders underneath the floor which gives the structure a bit of weight.

Once you’ve got your cardboard house you could always make some cardboard fedex furniture to go with it :).

I love your cardboard house and I am interested in designing a very large greating card but I have been finding it difficult shopping for a very large cardboard. I write to inquire if you can produce a very large size of card measuring about 20 x 18 metres, or you can please tell me the largest size of cardboard you can produce.

I will love to get in contact with the producer of the cardboard used in making the cardboard house please.

i am overjoyed at this opportunity to express my humble opinion concerning this gagdet. interesting though it is, i hope this is not the finished article as there appears to be no front door! in addition, the shelves contained within the “house” slope downwards and i personally wouldn’t feel safe from the elements in such a dwelling.
kind regards,

No doors/windows & down-sloping shelves? A ladder to go upstairs? This shows is that cardboard can be used for designing, but is not a good example for real life use. There must be better efforts extant. Let’s see some of those!
