Unbelievable: This 95-year-old Paper House Has Stood The Test of Time

What do most of us do with old newspapers? Recycle them or throw them away. But what if we told you that there is a house in Rockport, Massachusetts that is made entirely with old newspapers. No we are not kidding at all.

“The Paper House” was build by a mechanical engineer called Elis Stenman in 1922. It is known that his family was under the house for six years. After his death in 1942, the house was preserved and turned into a museum.

This house was built with home made glue, varnish, and newspapers. The home made glue was made with water, flour, and apple peels.

Only if you notice closely you will realize that this is made entirely with newspapers but in actuality it looks like any other house. The most fascinating part is also that the interiors are made with newspapers like the piano, clocks and more.
