Bottle Houses - Did You Ever Hear of Such a Thing
Thank you to Miriam Gaddis, who today entered a brief post about bottle houses on her blog. Having never heard of bottle houses, I clicked on her post and then Googled "bottle houses" just to see what I would find.
What an interesting topic. In the early 1900's, folks would build houses out of bottles when bricks, wood, and other building materials were scarce. Later, several innovative people built bottle house attractions, either for the fun of it or as an exercise in recycling.
Personally, I've always had an affinity for glass containers. Bottles, jars, vases, you name it - something about the smooth, cool qualities of glass draws me to these vessels. So the idea of a house built from bottles is, to my mind, a delightful project.
If you would like to learn more about bottle houses, take a look at the links below. Perhaps you'll be inspired to build your own.
