Bungalow in the Boulders: 7,500 Bottle Home!

Talk about patience! This man built a home using 7,500 glass bottles — and you can rent it.

Called the “Bungalow in the Boulders,” the house sits near Joshua Tree and boy is it stunning. Be sure to watch the video with Deek from Relaxshacks.com after checking out the pictures, because the builder explains the painstaking process he used to cut, glue and mortar the walls of this rustic-glam vacation home. Rent it here!

    I absolutely love this house. When my big brother and I were kids, we built a fort in our woods out of Mom’s discarded glass bleach bottles and mud (Mom had no clue or she wouldn’t have allowed it). Even though it was tiny, it was big enough for the two of us.

    I’m forwarding this to my brother (now 75 yrs. old), who lives far away, sadly. I’m sure it’ll bring a grin to his face, just as it did to mine.

    I didn’t watch the video, well maybe a few seconds of it or more…! But I guess that if you had to build with anything, why not bottles… I mean, I guess that it offers some kind of R- Value… And if anything it looks really cool from both points of view, in and outsides….!

    Very unique, and it is pretty. But I would feel like I was inside some kind of computer motherboard, lol. But kudos on a cool design!

    Amazing work! Such dedication.

    Talk about recycling–woah! Good job, guy.

    The house is certainly “funky”, but watching the video reminded me of looking at what might be left after a nuclear apocalypse with all the rusting cars and swings, etc. The house was unique, though, you have to say that much.

    This got me reminiscing about the bottle collection I had during my youth…
