26 Coolest Cardboard Houses Ever

There is something about cardboard houses that I love so much. It’s the private space in there where nobody can see you, it’s the feeling of having your own home (when you play ‘home’), it’s probably all the little details that make it look so cute.

To be totally honest I play in one, together with my kids and I am enjoying it so much. Really. In fact, I wanted to build one more then my kids did. I had to convince them so I COULD MAKE ONE. For them.
