16 House Made from Bottles

House Made from Bottles

Posted on November 15, 2006 by team


All know that in Russia people drink a lot.

That’s not only Russia the country where people drink a lot, but probably Russia is the biggest country where the vodka is the problem.

So drinking a lot means a lot of empty bottles. They can be recycled of course but they also can be used in some other way.

For example like this one, a guy have built a house using empty bottles.

It’s pity he couldn’t figure out a way of making the roof also from the bottles.

    Alfred Heineken, of Dutch beer fame, once set up a pilot project called the World Bottle, to make bottles that could be used for construction when empty. The idea never set through. I figure you’d have a lot of problems with smell and insects though ;-)

    This has been done in various parts of the world– I think there is a lot of potential here.

    I bet the light inside is very pretty. . .unless he plastered over the bottles.

    yes, clearly beer or wine bottles. Geet some friends together and over one weekend you’d have enough empoties to make a wall– not likely with vodka bottles (unless you all ended up in the hospital with alcohol poisoning).

    maybe he could make a roof from flattened beer cans?

    I heard about one ‘dacha’ in Omsk which had its баня (sauna) made of bottles… they told the point was to keep them filled with water, so they help to keep inner warmth once they have been warmed up by sunshine.

    It’s something which I already heard had been done in other russian cities.

    What does he do when a stone breaks one the bottles embedded in the wall? I bet he would have to break the house down to replace a bottle.

    So does he have the bottles capped? I hope so, bugs yuck!

  7. I guess that these champagne bottles are rejects from the factory. Champagne bottles are accurately tested before being filled, because the pressure is high enough. So they don’t smell because they were never filled in.

    BTW one old concert hall in Vladimir has a wall covered by champagne bottles under plaster, for perfect acoustics.
