Wow!  I wish they sold them here.  And that Heineken wasn't so expensive...

That's really neat-I'm inspired. I will build a wall very soon out of these-Mickey's bottles here in Canada. I will have to cut the tops off , but that will be easy with my tile saw. Love that green color

That is SO cool.  I am designing ways to use mostly bottles to build houses without hardly any cement and lots of reused objects.  Very exciting stuff!

I own this great plaster sprayer I got from Nolan at www.mortarsprayer.com.

I'm kind of giving away my idea, but hey that's what forums are for, right?  Go ahead and try something and let me know.

So I am glueing the bottles together to get them to stay in a big stack to make a wall, and spraying stabilized plaster onto both sided.  You can put jars over the ends of the bottles in areas where you want windows.  Get it? 

Cheers,
