WTF? I can see brick/cement pillars and roof...
Heavens to recycling! Make it all mixers and the party never ends.
He should build a chimney out of bottle tops....just to cap it off.
“Only the foundation of the property is concrete”
And the pillars, and the roof... Don’t you hate it when journalists are so ignorant they can’t identify things in their own supporting photos?!
Otherwise, a cool house. I don’t think I’d want it next to mine though.
If the women don’t find you handsome, they might as well find you handy.
“No, no, I won’t live in that, not by the hair on my chinny chin chin.”
The bottle infill for the railings is especially ugly, but I appreciate the concept.
Wonder if he has bricks in his refrigerator?
More power to him....but I’d not wanna be in that house when there’s a fire.
Beer Can House (Houston)
Inside house made from bottles in Calico, Calif.
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.
I think someone should send a photo to the “Webster” folks - the ones who publish dictionaries. The photo might be useful under the entries for “Tacky”, “Kitschy”, “trashy”, etc.
So that’s what Ricardo Monteban has been up to.
I once saw a photo of a house built from empty jars of embalming fluid. IIRC it was somewhere in Southeast Asia.
Seriously, in third world countries with warm climates, plastic bottles filled with dirt or sand would make good walls. Build a simple box frame out of 6 x 6s, and then fill in the walls with these “bricks.” The holes could be back-filled with clay, dirt, rags or paper.
