Recycle Those Bottles at home!
This famous Glass Bottle House in Boswell, BC features half a million empty, square, embalming fluid bottles. They were used for most of the elements that make up this beautiful home. The late David H. Brown begun the project in 1952 when he retired from thirty five years in the funeral business, to "to indulge a whim of a peculiar nature". They weigh 250 tons in all.
The Glass House was meant to be the Browns retirement home, but attracted so much curiosity of passers-by, even though it was situated in the remote part of the Kootneys in Boswell. Suffering from complete lack of privacy, they eventually employed a staff and admitted the curious to view this masterpiece.
editor's note: I'm sure it'll work just as well with round bottles! Even though the Liquor Licensing Agencies around the world are not in the construction business, even as a secondary endeavor, it seems they are unwittingly accommodating an ecologically sound recycling and sustainability option! One could start with a small wall or a low pathway's edge and when sober, continue on to larger areas. Such incentive... and entirely unique.
