Jenna Mack is not an ordinary recycler.  She is building her eco-home from about 7.000 used  beer bottles, in Evans, West Virginia.

Bellow, you can see the 8 steps of Jenna:

  1. Collect the bottles
  2. Clean the bottles – important for clarity of the glass and adhesion to the mortar.
  3. Build the foundation and frame – nothing is more important than stability when building a glass house
  4. Build the roof – A shed style steel roof ideal for rainwater harvesting. 
  5. Stack the bottles –four rows in a day and then setting; slow and time consuming
  6. Install the bathroom. 
  7. Install solar panels, water systems
  8. Decorate and landscaping.Bottle_Sorting(1)
