House Made From Newspapers

Ellis Stenman was a man ahead of his time. He built this house made from thousands of newspapers back in 1922, decades before the focus was on recycling and reusing to be more earth-friendly. It took two years to complete construction and according to How To Be A Retronaut(website), “Eventually, he began crafting chairs, tables, lamps and even a piano out of rolled-up newspapers held together by a glue he created himself out of four, water and apple peels.” This house, which is now a museum, is still standing in Rockport, Massachusetts. I don’t even know what to say except wow!
