I want to build something like these: with the packaging I saved from our IKEA wardrobe, bookshelves, etc, etc. but I'm not sure where to start. I've seen the chairs at but I'm not finding anything for a house, and I'd like it to be sturdy enough to last the next 6 weeks, if possible.

Can you help? Please?

how about this one

a friend of mine said they painted their cardboard house with leftover gloss paint and it lasted a couple of years. I can't see cardboard lasting that long here

I went to the Mr McGroovy site and am obsessed! I also got DH into it, we've got BIG plans now. I can't believe these things are soooo cool!
