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.
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 :).
