London – A Serbian pensioner has celebrated his retirement by moving into a house that he built entirely out of plastic bottles.
It took five years and 13 500 bottles for Tomislav Radovanovic, from the central town of Kragujevac, to build the 60 square metre house.
He told the national news agency Tanjug that he hopes to enter the Guinness Book of World Records.
Only the foundation of the property is concrete, and all other parts of the house are made of plastic bottles that he had been collecting for years.
Even the windows are made of plastic bottles.
Radovanovic, who worked as a professor of mathematics before he retired, said his former students had helped him build the property by collecting bottles. – Ananova.com
