Building a house is always a serious undertaking.

I was about 5 years old when my uncle began showing me how to build a card house. He taught me three different ways in which I could stack the cards. Each time he would start and I would want to jump right in after him and start building the house with what he had already done. But he would not let me. Finally after he had given me all of his instruction I was given the deck of cards. Repeatedly every time I went to build the second floor of my house it would fall down. Then finally I got a few cards to balance on the top, and my uncle gave a little blow and it all came tumbling down. After a crying fit I began again. Eventually I got skilled enough to build a 4 story house, but as with all card houses they eventually fall down.

The materials are just not good enough to build a house.

Cards are paper which comes from Wood, but that does not mean it is just as good as a log to build a house out of.
