Bottles for Building Material

Imlay, Nevada


I was unable to gain access to the inside of the upper photo but the photo below of a room with far less bottles gives you a bit of an idea as to how it must look inside with the sunlight shining through.

And if you have some bottles left over cement them into a wagon wheel.

  1. all those wonderful blue bottles in the wagon wheel. I guess they all add up to bringing some brilliant colour into a somewhat dusty environment

  2. I have seen such houses in different places. Aparently their are many people who have a lot of bottles and decide to do something with them. But to put them in a wheel I have never seen before!I always wonder where the bottles come from all full used by the owner?

  6. This is a very interesting concept that seems to appear once in a while. You've revived my interest in glass houses.
