    I can see from the comments that some folks are against this type of
    structure. As for me, I think this type of project is a wonderful way to
    help the less fortunate. By recycling, they are keeping these bottles away
    from the landfills & and bringing them to good use by building homes,
    classrooms, clinics, etc. for their communities. At some point, w/time &
    more experience, they can begin to build bigger, better & sturdier future
    projects. At the very least, I believe this is a good start for them,
    so…way to go!

    Then a wind storm came and house went bye bye. Then insert big ass mess to
    clean up!

    La ‪#‎casa‬ non ce la costruirei ma per un garage potrei farci un
    pensierino. Chissà se qualche geometra sarebbe disposto a redigerne il
    progetto :D

    Congratulations to the Samarpan Foundation! Saving the energy and resources
    and labor to create bricks and helping to build affordable low-cost
    buildings with thick energy efficient walls. Well done!

    I wonder if there would be better insulation value if the bottle were left
    empty. A capped bottle encased as they are would still still be
    structurally sound, no?

    till someone starts opening the bottles and letting the sand drain out…

  • Matt Carrasquillo says:

    I think it would be even cheaper if you figure out how to make your own
    cement instead of buying it.

    Magnifique idée. Tellement pratique! Peut on savoir quelle est le prix de
    revient de cette maison. Quelle est la différence avec une ‘vraie’ maison ?

    This is a cool concept. I wonder how long this structure will last? It has
    no real support beams. It’s definitely not hurricane proof. The roof would
    come flying off.

    First of all, great job.
    How this house behave in front of a natural hazard? Seismologically I think
    this would behaves well because of the elasticity, but in front of a
    strong storm, a flash flood or something simillar… did you have any
    expert in house risk?

    I am not trying to denigrate the house, I just want to know it.

    Well this is actually a smart ass way..because think long ago they used
    like fucking mud and…sticks and all that (three pigs haha) But give it
    time and the government will say “Nope bottles are illegal to use for
    making this because… some stupid reason” and they will make it illegal
    because its an EASY way and it would help people so…yeah…

    The only good thing about this is the environmental side (recycling of
    Basically this is a normal low cost construction with bottles instead of
    If a real LCA was performed on that, I doubt it would show any benefit. The
    amount of voids that need to filled with plaster (read: bad material in
    terms of environmental impact) appears to be significantly more than what
    bricks would require to obtain a flat surface.

    Une idée génial! En plus de fournir un abris, un établissement
    d’apprentissage dans le cas présent. Cette construction recycle les
    bouteilles en une construction utile qui, réduira la pollution de notre
    environnement! Wow! C’est fantastique! Économe! Et, tellement pratique pour
    fournir un abris aux personnes à faible revenu! Tels que, les sans-abris de
    nos villes lors, des froids hivernales! J’ai publié! Merci!

    What can bottles do that bricks can’t? Not trying to be a jerk, I just
    don’t get why use bottles?
