The House Made Of Newspapers

If you go to Rockport in Massachusetts, the United States, take some time to drive down Pigeon Hill Street and look out for a sign that says 'Paper House.' The paper house began in 1922 when Elis Stenman, a mechanical engineer, began building a small summer home.

The walls of the Paper House are made up of layers upon layers of old newspapers, glued together until they are about an inch thick, then finished off with a nice coat of varnish. Everything inside the paper house is also made of paper.
