Haven't heard of that, but for anyone who wants to learn about
building paper houses, Google "papercrete". Here's one site with lots
of info http://www.papercrete.com/ . Cheap if labor-intensive. Can be
poured into logs or bricks, or even sprayed or slip-formed. Often
mixed in low-cost tow-mixers. Here are some photos of one I built out
of mostly recycled stuff for a friend.

:-) than most. The whole concept is generally KIS in the extreme.

That must be a really old site that is not being maintained any more.  I
tried half a dozen links, and none of them produced the referenced
articles.  I even tried site searches at the parent site, and none of
them found anything on papercrete.  

There is a good link at
