Papercrete is the ultimate building material for preppers, homesteaders, and off grid living enthusiasts. It is easy and cheap to make. It also could solve your paper and cardboard recycling problems. Literally!
You make these building blocks by using old paper or cardboard. The process to make papercrete is easy and if you are looking to build a bug out location or projects like a root cellar this project is for you.
The good thing about papercrete is that you can build a strong, weather resistant shelter for very minimal cost. You can form it into bricks and build like a regular house or you can make dome style structures.
The paper fibers inside the mix keeps it all bound together and makes it very strong. Strong enough for dwellings and quick fixes to walls.
