Have you got the bottle? Answered

These chaps have built houses entirely out of either glass bottles or plastic bottles.

I saw pictures of the first on BBC Newsround (kids' news) - it looks quite good. I haven't found pictures of it online, but I have found this old one

I can't help wondering what they look like at night...

There was a National Trust House we visited which had a little section in the gardens which was "green" which had a plastic bottle greenhouse, one problem about this green garden and that was green and run over with weeds. :D

Sounds like somebody had a good idea and then didn't follow-through. Actually, I bet you could build a pretty good greenhouse out of plastic bottles... (ponders) ... if you use slightly-tapered bottles, then maybe you could construct a dome...

hmm. This one was made by the bottles end to end overlapping on a bamboo pole.

When I was in my early teens my friends and I were exploring in the woods down by what is now the busy UCF area and we can across the remains of a house that someone had started to build from wine bottles, it was mainly walls with jagged ends of broken bottles sticking out, quite dangerous and alluring to a 13yo Thanks for making me remember that!
