Unique Bottle Houses for the Environmentalist Home-Makers

It’s not every day you see a bottle house and one that is made with such great details too! Here Are 10 Structures Made From Bottles. Let’s see which one will impress you more!

Used bottles can be used for a lot of things including building a house.

We are not kidding of course.

If you collect lots and lots and lots of bottles, you will be able to build a beautiful home! You can choose to use a glass bottle or plastic bottle.

With whatever material you use, you have converted yourself into an instant hero for doing something huge for the environment.

Everything started from that aim- to help save the environment or merely to get rid of tons of bottles that are just dumped on the corner. You might be surprised to see that these little bottles can turn into a house.

Let us take a look at these extraordinary masterpieces!

1. Casa Ecologica de Botellas Plasticas

Casa Ecologica de Botellas Plasticas (a house made of plastic bottles) is a house in Argentina that is made entirely of plastic bottles from the house to the furniture!

This bottle house looks transparent, but there is still privacy for the owners. It looks very simple and relaxing.

2. The Kaleva Bottle House

The Kaleva Bottle House in Northern Michigan has a rich history. It was built by John J. Makinen, Sr. in 1941 out of over 60,000 pop bottles that came from his own Northwestern Bottling Works.

Most of the house’ walls used bottles as the outer exterior. This adds a rather unique look to the house.

3. Courtyard House in Bandung, Indonesia

This split-level Courtyard house in Bandung, Indonesia occupies a site area of 373 square meters. Sixty percent of the house is made from a bottle. Just look at how modern it looks!

I love how the design turned out. It doesn’t look like the usual bottle house that you’d expect it to be.

4. Six-gabled House

Six-gabled House is just one of the three houses in the Cap-Egmont, Prince Edward Island which is all made from glass bottles. Even the insides are made from bottles too.

The bottle house, especially the interior looks fragile. It has a certain cold appeal to it, don’t you think?

5. Route 66 Ghost Town of Calico, California

A House Made of Bottles in the Route 66 Ghost Town of Calico, California which was constructed with 5,000 bottles in the 1950s.

The house looks quaint with that rugged landscape where it was built.

The Bottle House at Airlie Gardens in Wilmington, North Carolina is made entirely of glass bottles stacked with the bottom facing outward and set by mortar. Beautiful design!

We love the details of the design on the first photo, with its mosaic-like design quality.

The Temple of a Million Bottles

A group of monks in Thailand built The Temple of a Million Bottles in 1984. With their belief in Karma, they did their part for the local environment by using recycled bottles for their temple.

The temple looks incredible from the outside and doesn’t look like it was made of bottles at all.

8. Tom Kelly’s Bottle House

It is said that there are three bottle houses in Rhyolite but Tom Kelly’s Bottle House is the largest and was recently rehabilitated in 2005.

The house has a tropical feel to it and looks pretty simple.

9. The Bottle House

The Bottle House, a local icon in Ganja, Azerbaijan is made of glass bottles from the collection of the owners.

We love how the owners used other recycled items to build the house aside from the bottles.

10. Olga Kostina House

Russian pensioner Olga Kostina decorated her house with 30,000 bottle caps forming colorful patterns and images. It is located in the Russian village of Kamarchaga, in the Siberian Taiga and is a sure head turner! Well, even the bottle’s cover can be useful!

We love the colors and patterns of the wall.

Ready to build your dream home? With the above examples of bottle houses, you can certainly do that too.

Well, you can start with a greenhouse or maybe your dog’s house if you want to. But that would be a good start.

At least, if you engage in too much drinking sprees, you have an excuse- you need to drink to build a house!

So, what do you think? Are you inspired by these unique bottle houses? We certainly were!
