This Awesome Cardboard House Is Pretty Sturdy It Can Last Up To 100 Years





Never underestimate the Wikkelhouse – even if it’s merely made of cardboard. This small house is designed and developed by Fiction Factory, a “company of creative makers from Amsterdam,” the official website tells us. Since 1989, the company has been building “exceptional interiors, fair stands and furniture for a worldwide audience.”

This time, they’ve tried their hands at making houses, too and the result is nothing short of brilliant – a durable house that can be installed in a single day.

Wikkelhouse, or “wrapping house” in Dutch, mainly uses large rolls of cardboard box as its material.

Wikkelhouse, which translates to “wrapping house” in Dutch, is built using a massive machine and utilizes big rolls of recycled cardboard. The machine coats the cardboard with adhesive and then wraps it around a sturdy frame for 24 times, ensuring that it is in the right shape and is very sturdy. After erecting the house, designers will make it waterproof and add gorgeous wood paneling to the exterior. Once completed, the cabin-like structure is expected to last for up to 100 years.

The company says the Wikkelhouse is portable and fully customizable.

According to its makers, the Wikkelhouse is actually “fully customizable and the design can be tweaked to suit your preferences.”

The makers also say the “eco-friendly residence” can last up to 100 years.

The official website further tells us:

“If you want a larger house, for example, the designers can create it by simply adding more sections to the overall frame. Since no good home would be complete without a kitchen or bathroom, Wikklehouse can also include them to create the perfect eco-friendly residence.”
