Dear SBSE'rs,

Greetings from Kathmandu ! I would like to share about a project I recently
completed called "Bottle house".

*What is a bottle house?*
Bottle house is a building construction technology which is a
cost-effective, environmentally-friendly alternative to conventional
building bricks. The house built up by waste Polyethylene Terephthalate
(PET) plastic bottles filled with sand or soil as a building unit for

A student workshop was conducted for disseminating knowledge about this
technology. Students then volunteered in construction of this house which
is made for a earthquake affected family. Students are from Architecture /
engineering college in Kathmandu.  The idea was to involve students during
actual construction so that students can benefit in following ways:-

- Working with community as a volunteer
- Exposure in sustainable building construction technology sector
- Leadership development
- Outside the class learning experience in post-disaster reconstruction

Below are the links to:-
1) Brochure of bottle house

2) few pictures of the workshop and practical session

Your comments and suggestions in this regard will be highly appreciated and
always will be well received !

Thank you and I wish you a pleasant time ahead.

Best regards,

Kathmandu, Nepal
