papercrete for slab insulation

Some time back we were wanting to build a papercrete house but after spending
a year and a half reasearching it we have decided to build a somewhat conventional
house. During that time we had several freinds save us paper and as you can imaginge
we have a conciderable stack of the stuff.
Our question is.....Can we make papercrete slabs to use under our heated cement floor ?
That would replace the two inch foam insulation board under the heated slab.
Any ideas out there. Thanks for your help

Hi Anne,

Papercrete is not recommended for any "at or below" grade applications. Some do use and do it...still not good practice.
