Man builds champagne bottle house in memory of his brother
Eldar Ilchibayev’s brother, who passed away a few years back, had dreamt of making a house out of empty champagne bottles. His dream remained unfulfilled, but after his passing, his brother and father decided to go ahead with the plan. The house has now been completed in Russia’s western Ural Mountain region, reports Decanter.com.
Eldar and his father waited for two years before they could get enough bottles to finish the house. They collected the empty bottles from various recycling factories. Friends and neighbours also donated their used sparkling wine bottles. If he had to use his own bottles, Eldar would have had to consume 32 bottles of champagne daily for one whole year!
The house has a wooden frame. The builders have poured concrete in between the bottles to hold them in place. The champagne house has now become a major tourist attraction as well.
