The Bottle Castle

The Bottle Castle seems to be a later addition than the two bottle houses.

As a structure, the castle isn't especially interesting and there is nothing inside. It is very simply constructed from 7UP bottles, plywood and cement, but because the bottles protrude on the inside it makes for a nice lighting effect on an otherwise gloomy day. This is the same method used to construct many nineteenth-century bottle houses, such as the well-known house in Rhyolite, Nevada.
