There are many types of owner built homes. I dream of building myself one someday. My favorite is stone but there are straw, cordword and even paper.

Waxed corrugated bale house

I used to work for a wastepaper exporter, and I know that waxed corrugated is almost impossible to recycle. Sometimes wastepaper packers have to pay to have it hauled away, so, yes, a waxed corrugated bale house could be very economical. On the other hand those high density bales weigh more than half a ton, so you would have to use some heavy duty equipment to build a wall. Also there is the problem with odor. Wax corrugated is used for packing fish poultry, meat and some vegetables so they can be packed with ice, and consequently it smells. I suppose you would want to put some kind of plaster on the inside anyway, so maybe the smell would not go through that.
