For the interior, Sam said he used black acrylic paint and a bingo marker-pen in four different sizes, while spray paints were used for the outside.
All the surfaces have been lacquered to ensure they do not fade.
''The completion of the house is just the beginning of my childhood dream to doodle the entire planet and to encourage the art world to recognise doodles as an art form.
''I am so excited that my doodles now have a permanent home in the UK.,'' he told KentOnline.

Nigerian man builds house with plastic bottles
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that a man had built a three-bedroom house with 14,800 plastic bottles.
Explaining the process of building the house, Ahmed said workers filled the plastic bottles with sand and linked them at the neck by an intricate network of strings.
He said the building is the first in sub-Saharan Africa, adding that it is cheaper to build because the building materials are available on the streets and trash dump centres. The house has three rooms, a toilet and a kitchen.
