Links To Papercrete Recipies

Papercrete is a kind of adobe mixture of cement and paper. First used in the 1920's it has become popular with eco home builders who are after light weight cement and also want to extend the amount of cement they get from one bag. I don't have a favorite recipe as such but tend to adapt as I go. Generally I like twice the amount of paper to cement. I don't care what sort of cement I use and the sand content is by following the instructions on the bag . I will sometimes add plaster just to get a smoother effect. But if your pedantic about amounts here's some links
