Irish artist Frank Buckley found a way to live in a billion-dollar home for only a few bucks, and has opened his property up to the public so they may marvel at his creativity. Dubbed the €1.4 billion dollar home, or roughly $1.8 billion dollars, this structure was created by tons of shredded banknotes to form the walls, floors and some of the furniture, reports The Age. Guests who savor adventure travel can see the home for free on their getaway to Dublin this spring.
Three rooms serve as a living space and a gallery for Buckley and his paintings. He says he charges no entrance fee, but hopes to expose the public to his unique creativity. All of the shredded paper Euros were donated by the government and mashed up to form building blocks. The entire project cost Buckely roughly $45 dollars, just for the wallpaper paste.
According to the Irish Times, the artist says that he hopes his project will encourage more people to talk about the global state of the economy and what it means to all citizens of the world. A visit to the house can be paired with all the other exciting attractions to see and do in Dublin on a great Europe travel excursion.
