Newspaper House

A good use for newspapers: House Made Of Newspaper Lasts For 88 Years.

Elis Stenman, an engineer who invented the paper clip machine, began work on this unique building in 1922.  He was curious about whether rolled newspaper could be used as an effective insulation… Stemnan covered his house in over 100,000 rolled newspapers. He coated it with varnish to protect it from the harsh weather.
