Russian Woman Built A House Out Of Bottles
The glass bottle house built by Olga Queen,
from Novoshakhtinsk, Russia is a fine addition
to our hefty collection of glass bottle architecture,
which already includes various bottle houses and
a unique bottle temple. In an effort to build
herself a house out of cheap and environment-friendly
materials, Olga Queen spent six months collecting
glass bottles, around her home town of Novoshakhtinsk.
She managed to gather around 5,000 of them,
which proved enough to build her very own little dream
house. Using some wood for the framework
and concrete to fix the bottles in place, she manged
to finish construction and is now ready to move in.
Glass might not seem like the right material to
use when building a house, especially in a place
