This Cardboard Home Lasts At Least 50 Years And Is 100% Recyclable

By Desirée Kaplan

You may have seen stylish houses built from concrete, wood, or bricks, but have you ever seen one made of cardboard? A group of creative makers in Amsterdam has found a way to design and build sustainable houses out of this rather surprising material. The company behind these homes, Fiction Factory, has been making customizable structures since 1989. More recently, they've begun focusing on more customizable, environmentally friendly dwellings.

Fiction Factory spent four years researching and developing their construction technology to build an architecturally sound house out of this everyday material. As a result, they created a patented technique that allows them to create homes using cardboard made from Scandinavian trees as the core material.
