Paper houses and more

Postby Lightening Bug » Tue May 21, 2019 1:46 pm

I'm reading a book that is about a variety of things in Massachusetts. One chapter includes a description of a full sized paper house built in MS one hundred years ago. The builder also made the furniture for the house out of paper. He made a wood frame then did the interior with thick paper. It was so sturdy he decided to make the exterior out of paper too. The house is open to visitors for $1.50 per visit.

So I thought what else full sized is made out of paper? Turns out there is a lot. What I've found to be interesting is you can buy kits to make paper houses and other things. The houses range in price from 2-5K. Wonder whether the builders have any problems having the city or counties approve their construction.

Check it out -

Have you made anything, that is large, out of paper?

Just wondering.

Take care. :D
