It is always so amazing to see the different ways that people are able to utilize readily available, sustainable materials for building solutions…this one in particular happened to be a house made from beer bottles!

Tito Ingenieri, a man from Argentina, was at a loss for materials to build his home. The solution? Collecting beer bottles over the course of 19 years to construct a place to live. The ingenious idea brings new life to 6 million beer bottles which might have otherwise become recycling, or waste.
