As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, we (meaning “Brien”, of course–although I did help a little…) made the girls a cardboard house this weekend.

As I also mentioned, we had piles of cardboard lying around, having been saved from our IKEA entertainment center.  I think the plan had been to build a house using rectangles and squares, but nothing had been set in stone.

And then, having tucked the cardboard into the guest room, we rather forgot about it until we had guests last week.  Oops!

As fate would have it, just as B was needing to get a plan together, he received his daily Instrcutables email and included was a model of a house similar to this.  PERFECT!
