This Gorgeous Little Beach House Is Created Using Recycled Materials And Flotsam And Jetsam Washed Ashore With The Tide...

Sticks and stones so the old saying goes may break your bones but add all three elements to some carefully selected pieces of recycled materials, old bottles and other bits of flotsam and jetsam the tide has conveniently brought ashore and you have all the material you need to build a very cute tiny home.
And let's not bother going anywhere near bureaucratic building codes.
There's more here about this gorgeous little structure that makes it's home on Graham Island, one of the many off the coast of British Columbia. Anything is possible...


  1. Those bottles make for an interesting design. They make buildings like that west of here in the desert. The more bottles the brighter it is in the day time.

  2. Looks like the Flintstone's house...

  3. I'd love to build & inhabit something like that. Love the stained glass bottles. But what's the cement that holds it all together? Not cob, I'm guessing, as that melts in the rain & the eaves don't look deep enough to keep the water off.

    For some reason it reminds me a little of the chapel at Sea Ranch in California (look it up, you won't regret it).


    1. Thanks for that Val. I will do a post on it sometime...
      You're right about the eaves not being deep enough for cob... don't know what the material is...
