This House Looks Normal But It’s Actually Made Entirely Of Newspaper

In Rockport, Massachusetts there is a two room cabin made entirely out of newspapers, glue and varnish. The house was built by Elis Stenman in 1922, and he lived there with his family for six years. Everything inside the paper house is also made of paper. Stenman built chairs, tables, bookshelves and even curtains and a clock out of newspaper and magazine pages. Only the piano is made of wood and covered with paper to maintain uniformity, and the fireplace is made of bricks, for obvious reason. After Stenman passed away the house was then turned into a museum.
