This little house has built after the storm that hit Columba SC in 2015. I came to visit my new love, driving from Charlotte to Columbia for the weekend and the skies opened up and dumped so much water in his city that it flooded areas surrounding his neighborhood and I couldn't go back home for four days. The roads were damaged, trees felled and many dams broke. So many homes were damaged, contractors were booked solid for over a year it took some two years for life to get back to normal for some. I built this little house to bring awareness for the victims of the flood who suffered with rebuilding following a call to artists. The foundation is made with scrap cardboard, to which I added strips of folded magazine paper cut into little brick shapes, coiled paper decorates the front walls like a decorative stone facade. Paper tubes look like wood panels and the roof shingles are triangles of paper I folded for that purpose. This home is pretty much a whimsical reproduction of a typical Carolina new construction...
