Plastic Bottle House
A retired Serbian physics professor has built a house with plastic bottles in the place of bricks, a local newspaper reported on Monday.
Tomislav Radovanovic, who came up with the idea before becoming a pensioner, built the dwelling from around 14 000 bottles in the central town of Kragujevac, 130km south of the capital Belgrade.
"I had the idea to build such a house while speaking to my students about alternative construction," he told the Politika newspaper.
The unique building material was collected by Radovanovic and his students from litter that had been scattered around the surrounding countryside - making his project very cheap.
"The house is comfortable and it practically cost me nothing," Radovanovic said, noting that the bottles make good heat insulators.
