THE PEACE HOUSE
HOW TO DO IT
- Step 1: Wash some milk cartons
with bleach (if not it´s nasty). Pay attention to use the same kind of carton (ordinary ones are the best)
Step 2: Paint these cartons with acrylic
paint ( Cover all the sides, even the bottom). When dried you can decorate them painting words or sticking pictures
Step 3: Use a particle board as the floor of the house.
-Step 4: Stick the cartons to the board with glue and hot glue in between the cartons to make it stronger. Leave some free space for the door. When building be aware of the position of the bricks ( as in a real wall ) Sometimes you will have to cut the carton in halves to fit the space. Insert one of the halves in the other to make it stronger (Look at the purple brick in the middle)
Step 5: In the 5th row leave
space for the window in both
sides of the house. You will have
to cut some cartons again. Three
rows afterwards you can finish the
window by placing a piece of wood
from a fruit box as a lintel.
Step 6: Do the same in the back
side but in the 5th row but in the
As you can see all the windows
have wood all around. The pieces
on the sides and at the bottom
can be put when finished.
Back window Side windows
Step 7: Repeat the action with the door (wood lintel)
-Step 8: Once you have built one row above the door level you have to start shaping a triangle in the front and back sides. You have to stop building the sides of the house .
To do that, prepare the triangle without sticking it to the house.
To shape the wall you will have to cut some cartons. Insert the part you cut inside the other one to make it stronger. Stick them with hot glue. -Step 9: to reinforce the structure make a hole in the second last row of both triangles. Insert the cardboard tube simulating a beam.
When you have both triangles built and joined together by the tube then stick the whole block to the rest of the house. -Step 10: Take a piece of cardboard big enough to be the roof of the house and fold it in two. To make the tiles use construction paper and shape them as you see in the picture.
You can stick them with glue and sticky tape.
Step 11: Built the chimney with a carton cut in the shape of the roof. Fill it with some papers and bend what you cut towards the inner part of the carton. Stick it to the roof with glue and ….
