Babel (20,000 Words) - Update

So, I've altered my plans for this project. New rules: I don't have to limit myself to re-using the same materials over and over, and I don't have to keep rebuilding the piece. Instead, I have to incorporate all of the pages from the 20,000 Words book into the structure. I would like to keep the interior spaces rough, but have the exterior whitewashed and wallpapered with words. Here are some photos of work in progress:

Why Babel? More on that later. I'll also try to provide a context for this project, and give some historical examples of works that I feel relate to what I'm trying to do.
