Bottle Buildings!

I was recently asked if I had ever seen the Bottle Houses of Prince Edward Island.

“Never did,” I responded. “I’ll Google it.”

When I searched for “bottle houses,” I found more than those on Prince Edward Island. There are a lot of them – and they are amazing.

Here are shots of the Bottle Houses of PEI.

This house is in “Ripley’s Believe It or Not” and in “1,000 Places to See Before You Die.” The house, built in 1980 by Edouard Arsenault, is made of 30,000 bottles. The gardens are beautiful and the bottle village contains a gift shop, a tavern, a chapel, and a six-gabled house.

OTHER BOTTLE HOUSES

In addition to the Bottle Houses of PEI, there are others. This one, located in Argentina, is made from plastic bottles.

 

This one is in Uitgawe.

 

This bottle house is in Nepal.

Now, THAT’S what you call upcycling!
