Mom thought it would be cool to see the bottle house. On the way we stopped by the World’s Smallest Police Station, there isn’t much to it, it was just a telephone, but somebody felt bad for them and built a box around it.
The Bottle House was not what I expected. It was about 10 feet by 10 feet and had about a 15 foot roof where it was highest which was donated to him by a friend of his that was a retired roofer. Inside it had a cork coffee table, a cork desk, a lawn chair, some bottles on display, and a jar with a label that read, Donations.
Then we looked around at the yard. There was a bottle lighthouse, a bottle bench, and about 7 square plates made of bottles formed a stack. In the yard there was also a 6 frequency icosahedron made of equilateral triangles. Leon was also working on a 2 frequency icosahedron inside of another, inside of another. Leon wanted to make it 6 frequency. He ended up learning from his mistakes though!
Leon had 2 poodles Zach and Sophie. Zach was black and Sophie was white. Before Leon owned them they were rescue dogs. Zach was a very poorly treated dog and he wouldn’t look at anybody. It took Leon 6 months for Zach to get back to normal. Now that Zach is back to normal, he loves kids. Sophie on the other hand, was a top notch, $300, rescue dog. Sophie is really sweet and always follows Zach.
From 6:30 pm to 10:30 pm, the lighthouse’s light is on, the bottle stack kept flashing lights, and the 6 frequency icosahedron was supposed to spin around and the lights would reflect off the stained glass. Leon had a few HUGE solar panels and a computer to program the pattern the lights on the bottle stack which was donated to him by a friend of his which was an electric engineer.
Leon claimed he woke up to a cup of coffee one day and declared out loud, “I’m going to build a house made out of bottles so tourists know people live here!” and his wife said, ” Alright.” “The next day when saw the cement mixer come up and lay the base to the bottle house she was astonished.” Leon claims. ” It took a little over 1 year to build it, with some help of a couple friends.
