Inside house made from bottles in Calico, Calif.
Does it make whistling and windchime-like sounds when the wind gusts?
The grand-daddy of em all. Used to drive past this on the way to Tonopah and points East of there - weekly.
Nevada is full of old mining town with more than a little odd in the way of buildings.

He can change the color of his house by just filling the bottles with different color stuff.
Still, it’s about the ugliest house I think I have ever seen and a huge waste of effort.

In the Pittsburgh/SW PA area, anyone Slavic was/is a Hunkie, and I heard it was slang for Hungarian, specifically for Slavs emigrating from the Austro-Hungarian region. I heard that a lot from my Pittsburgh relatives, though I grew up north of there. I'm not Hungarian either. I still occasionally make 'Hunkie soul food', i.e. noodles with cooked cabbage, pierogies, etc.
