The shanty measures scale ten-foot square. It is constructed entirely out of paper. For the left and right walls, I used some soft corrugated paper I found wrapped around individual light-bulbs. These were painted and weathered to mimic corrugated sheets. I used the same material for the front wall, except I painted this section to represent board and batten. I used rock embellished paper for the back wall. The roof was fashioned from a piece of corrugated cardboard.
