33 Eco-Chic Houses Made from Recycled Materials

The Family Handyman Logo By Nick Gerhardt of The Family Handyman | Slide 1 of 33: The Paper HouseThe Paper House in Rockport, Massachusetts is exactly that, a house made from paper. It was built by Elis F. Stenman, a mechanical engineer who designed machines to make paper clips. He started building the home in 1922 and though the paper was first used as insulation, it expanded into furniture. Stenman used pressed paper and a lot of varnish for the walls and paper logs for the furniture.Photo: Courtesy of The Paper House
