Little cardboard house

I've been a bit lazy. I've wanted to make one of these for a while now but I kept putting off hunting out strong cardboard boxes. Then today I had a parcel arrive, (like...a huge one) and 'voila!' the perfect cardboard box lands right on my doorstep. Perfect. If all things could go so smoothly.
The nipper is in bed and as I wind down for the evening, I cut and tape the box to get it to resemble some sort of a house. This is what I ended up with...

Then I painted the whole thing white, ready to draw on. I think I prefer the original cardboard effect but we shall see, its not done yet, I plan to draw all over it. Maybe a bit cliche but I shall see how it goes. Worst comes to worst and I can just white it all out again...
