How long can I expect my structures built with foam core and a overlay of cardboard to last? 

Do I need to use reinforcement on the inside of my structures?

I live in a semi-arid part of the U.S. with lower dew points.

If you spray your structures with a protective coating like Krylon clear or dull coat, 
this will not only help against warping but also help the inks from fading. 

I have had paper structures for over 5 years without a problem.

There are several companies that sell designs that one could print. 
Just buy the design and save it to your PC and print as many as you need out. 

In an ironic twist of fate I don't own a printer, 
and now I am in the market because of these companies and the fact I do try to penny pinch when I can so I can use the money elsewhere.

On the bright side I at least won't need to use the library for important documents any more once I get that printer.
