Hybridtufa: Papercrete

Papercrete is an incredible building material.  Not only can you build troughs and garden decor, but you can also build furniture, dog houses and even small buildings.

The following pictures are from a 64 square foot garden shed that I built using nothing more than 2" X 4" and 1" X 6" lumber and papercrete.  Many of the techniques used to build this garden shed will be part of my new book  "Hybridtufa: Adventures with Hypertufa and Papercrete" , which is due to be published sometime in November. 

This small photo essay is just to show you one the many building possibilities available with papercrete.
