“Use a 2-liter soda bottle as a 50 watt incandescent lightbulb/light hack” -For low-budget, and salvage construction of tiny homes, mortgage-free housing….

This idea’s been around for sometime- but this video (even while subtitled) is pretty decent. Thanks to Bryce for sending it!

My concerns….in freeze/thaw climates you’re pretty much screwed, and once the roofing-seal gives, its leak-city! Additionally, I’d think the sun would deteriorate the plastic after awhile. I’ve messed with this idea a little in the past, but as WALL lights, which sat under a protective (from rain) overhang- they worked pretty well- I’d rather use the same idea with WINE bottle though- the glass will hold up much longer- and retain/prevent heat loss a little better.
