6 The Castle of a Belorussian Man

The Castle of a Belorussian Man

Posted on March 27, 2014 by team

The builder-enthusiast from Minsk, Belarus, built this house all by himself, reportedly. As the story goes, he goes to the construction site in the Belorussian village every weekend. He takes a train from his city, then travels two kilometers on foot. He has been managing this project for ten years already.  Locals call it “a fairytale castle” because a thousand glass bottles and other not very usual decoration pieces have been used in its construction.

“I spend $500 on supplies and materials every month”.

His wife, Nadezhda, goes with him too.

Some animals are depicted in decorations.

“This is a Giraffe, this is a Wolf”, says the man (the builder).

Evgenij is a scientist. He got awarded by the state. His field of study is retting. The process linen undergoes in one of its production stages.

    Seems legit.

    I like that he can do this without the government breathing down his neck.
    But that’s not a “dream house”, that’s a nightmare.
    Structurally unsound and dangerous.
    Sadly, it looks like he’s just giving up a little bit each day and won’t live to see it finished.

    Beautiful, “we” want to see the children of Jafet to be QUEENS and KINGS.

    Nice delusions of grandeur. I hope this man’s dreams come true.

    I don’t think it is actually unsound. He is using mixed mediums, but still putting arches, cap stones, and a few other things. the geometric twists in the brickwork are legit, I have seen those used elsewhere in other projects. Recycled materials are all the rage now for people who want their own homes but don’t have the money. You can use bottles, reused bricks, even used tires, straw bails, you name it. there is another very famous house in Mexico which is built all from recycled materials.
