Concerned about the fate of print media in an age of e-readers and RSS feeds? Here's yet another reason to keep the newspaper around: you can use 'em for shelter when times get really tough. That's what Elis F. Stenman did. His summer house (okay, maybe his times weren't so tough) in Rockport, constructed in 1922, is made entirely of newspaper and wood. But he didn't stop there. Every thing here — from the couch to the grand piano to the mantel above the fireplace — is made from newspaper. See it yourself for a reasonable $2 admission fee ($1/children age six to 14). It's either a home-size testament to one dude's hyper-obsessive tendencies, or a slightly excessive homage to traditional print news. Maybe a little of both. We feel him.
