Introduction: Build a House Out of Old Boxes

This Instructable will show you how to make a life-sized (you could fit one person in it or you could use it as a dog/cat house) house out of a few cardboard boxes. I had a bunch of boxes in my garage and me and my friend (Ronnies123 give him a follow) decided to make a house out of them. It took about an hour and fifteen minutes, and was not too hard. This was a great way to recycle these boxes while having fun. All you will need for this project is a few cardboard boxes, tape, pipe cleaners(or any other string), and scissors. I hope your project goes well.

Good Luck!!!!

Step 1: Step 1

First make the base of the house by taking a large box and taping the flaps together pointing up.

Step 2: Step 2

Now cut out a door from one side of your house, then take the piece you cut out and fasten it to the wall of your house with pipe cleaners(or other string), so you now have a door that can open and close.

Step 3: Step 3

Now make the roof (Warning this step is the longest and gets a little frustrating) by taking two large pieces of cardboard and connecting them over the house. Then finish the roof by putting in triangular pieces of cardboard to finish the roof.

Step 4: Your Finished

Great job you did it I hope your house turned out well and I hope you enjoyed making this Instructable. Now feel free to customize your house however you want you can paint it, decorate it, or something else (leave a comment on what you did to customize your house).
