Bottle House in El Salvador

Recycled bottles can create a dream home

In El Salvador, a couple, Prudencio Amaya, 102, and Maria Ponce, 78, decided that not having enough money to build a home won’t stop them from having their dream house. Their home, called “La Casita Encantada” or “The Enchanted Cottage,” has drawn attention for its clever use of recycled bottles as building material. Prudencio and Maria are reaping the benefits of their innovation as well–tourists have been stopping by to see the house and leaving donations for the couple.
