Artist Constructs Huge House Using 6 Million Beer Bottles


A recycling enthusiast from Quilmes, a city located in the province of Buenos Aires, Argentina, has constructed a big house from beer bottles. To complete the enormous structure, Tito Ingenieri required 19 years and 6 million bottles.

Ingenieri collected non-returnable bottles from the city streets and also asked his neighbors for help. Thus he was able to collect such a large number of beer bottles.

According to Ingenieri, his structure can inform about the rising river water levels. The bottles whistle when southern winds blow next to the bottles' necks, signaling about the possible storm. The man said that he would gladly teach anyone who wants to learn the building techniques.

We all can use a hobby but it's not often you get to live in it when you're done. My only problem with it is the length of time it took, but congrats on the accomplishment!
