This Amazing House Is Made Out Of Cardboard And Lasts 100 Years

This tiny house is made out of cardboard and only takes one day to construct.

Humble cardboard has been the material of choice for architect Shigeru Ban, who's already built a cathedral, pavilion, and hut from the stuff. And now, it's the premise of a new tiny home venture.

The "Wikkelhouse" is constructed from wrapping 24 layers of high-strength cardboard around a house-shaped mold.
The resulting structure, which is completely recyclable and expected to last 100 years, is then topped with a waterproof coating and wood paneling.

It's clever but I wouldn't want to live in it.
It's basically "I'm a living in a box.....I'm a living in a cardboard box...."

(What band did that song?)
