Hi Huadesoong,

Thanks for submitting the proposal. I have the following questions.

  1. One problem that comes to my mind with houses built with plastic is security, how will you ensure that it is fire resistant and stop miscreants from breaking into the house with a match stick?
  2. How do you plan to use plastics of different sizes, they can be of different sizes & shapes?

 

A few interesting articles related to your idea.

Hi Aadhithya!

   Thank you!

1.About fire,It can be filled by CO2;if it is filled by sand ,it can stop miscreants from breaking into the house with a match stick.

2.Plastic bottle capacity specifications , 500ml.1.25L, 2.5L, 5L, 10L, can be considered in the diameter of the promotion of standardization, another method is the large diameter bottle is double socket, small diameter is single jack, one to two plug.Other specifications correspond to their respective uses.

It can be filled by water for fire resistant.

You might be interested in Gaviotas (a community in Colombia), where they produce water in bottles shaped like large Lego bricks, which are later filled with sand and used as a building material, at least for play.

I see it now!

The buckle structure makes DIY very easy, does not require experience or sticks with cement,

With climate change increasing the water level fill the bottles of seawater if you live around the coast. And fill with sand if you live in the desert.
