LPG gate

We saw this really interesting house while we were driving home from Bataan this weekend.  I asked Erman to stop the car so I could go down and take pictures :)
The gate is made of empty LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) tanks fused together.  I wonder how the owner came up with this concept.  It is so cool!
Up close
The tanks look as if they are floating!
I noticed a lot of other unique materials used in the house.  Check out the old lamp post and the hanging LPG tank bell.  There is also a cement pipe and an umbrella made from scrap metal.
The security guard went out to talk to me while I was taking pictures.  I kept asking him about the tanks the place but he just shrugged and said that it was a private residence.  I hope I could take a look at what's inside next time :)


  1. That looks pretty dangerous, but... WOW.

  2. There's a guy at the Maryland Renaissance Faire who makes bells and other artwork out of old tanks. He had all kinds of bells in his booth when I went there last year. It was so cool!

  3. That's unique and kind of eerie hehehee. In which town in Bataan did you see this?

  4. cool! galing ng nakaisip. sabi ng mom ko, "mahal yan ah" pero ang galing!

  5. That's really cool! A good way to recycle:) have a good week!

  6. @El - I would love to go to a Renaissance fair :) Maybe someday?

    @wits - It's in Pampanga na. I wish I had more info on this house.
