is just what it sounds like - paper (or
cardboard) mixed with a small amount of cement
which acts as a binder.
Papercrete can be
used to make lightweight building blocks or as a
casting mix poured directly into forms.
Not only does
Papercrete make a great building material, but it
is a unique and creative way to reduce what is
otherwise a waste product which would likely go
into a landfill.
My friend Judith
Williams specializes in Papercrete construction
and occasionally offers building classes.
Below are a few
photos of her work.
