Thanks for the link. Kind of neat looking.
from the end of the site:
depending on where you put it, it might last a whole year. Termites absolutely love cardboard.
35k seems kind of steep. go to a good cardboard distributor and get 6 layer waxed cardboard for about 10$ a sheet and build away.
Maybe we could rename it Two little Pigs Housing. Actually this thing looks stronger than some of the older mobile homes. The price is unrealistic though.
Every once in a while some local school kids get on the news spending night in cardboard box to raise money for homeless. Always gets me thinking that if they just used waxed cardboard and layered it for insulation value and made it bigger, voila real cardboard cabin.
Personally although I am experienced with wood, I'd go for stone and sheetmetal roof if I were building again. Done right that would last centuries. The quality of boughten lumber isnt much better than cardboard anymore.
In Mexico, they have whole neighborhoods out of boxes from washing machines and refrigerators. If people who live in glass houses should not throw stones, then people who live in cardboard houses should not throw ________? (candles, fire crackers, water balloons?)
