This house is made out of cardboard and lasts 100 years

When you buy a home how long do you want it to last you?

Ten years; twenty; the rest of your life? Do you hope to pass it on to your children someday, to live and grow in? Well it may take some time to find that perfect home, but what are you going to do in the meantime? As housing costs continue to rise around the globe we’re seeing a whole slew of new and innovative ways to solve the problem, and this Wikkelhouse has got to be one of the coolest!

cardboard house

The house is primarily made of cardboard, compressed and glued together before receiving an all-weather coating and then surrounded by wood. It may sound like a flimsy, half-baked idea to some, but you’d be more than a little surprised with how sturdy and reliable this thing can be. Developed by a company in Amsterdam known as Fiction Factory, these modular homes are designed to withstand up to 100 years of use!


It’s absolutely mind-blowing that you can have a brand new home installed in just a single day. Of all the options thus far this Wikkelhouse not only allows you to change and mess with the desired length of the home, but this could be the start to an easy solution to the homeless and housing problems in one go! That’s not saying that it will, but it can definitely be a good step.
