Currently, Nigeria has a housing deficit of about 16 million. Lagos accounts for 30 percent of this deficit and more than 14 percent of Nigerians are homeless. The plastic bottle homes cost one-third of what a similar house made of concrete and bricks would cost.

To build a two bedroom bottle house, workers are required to fill 14,000 plastic bottles with sand and hold them together using cement and mud. The combination of cement with mud forms a solid wall which is stronger than the commonly used cinder blocks. The compacted sand, which is poured into the bottles is also 20 times stronger than brick.

After construction with different recycled bottles, these homes become colourful, fire proof, bullet proof, and earthquake resistant plastic residences and maintain an interior temperature of about 64 degrees Fahrenheit all year round, which ideally suits Nigeria’s hot climate.

However, these plastic homes cannot be built higher than three stories due to the weight of the sand –filled bottles used in constructing them. More photos below:
