  • This is definitely worth a visit if you are in town. The creator invented a system to make walls and create livable homes out of material that is usually discarded. He then goes out to poorer localities and teaches people how to create similar homes. We were given a tour (in Spanish) by the are of the founder. We were very impressed and grateful we had made the stop to see this non-tourist "one of a kind" place.

  • This man in my book deserves a nobel prize. I came up worth an idea for his own daughter to give her-her dream of a doll house and it turned into the ability to provide so many in the world at home. Humbled by the ability to meet him, and hear his story... one idea can spark a fire among the world... today i was blessed to be warmed by that fire!

  • This house of recycled materials is conveniently located near the Falls. Trust me, this is awesome. It's Pinterest on steroids. All the ways the owner reuses every-day materials is amazing. Definitely...  more »

  • I loved this place. It's great to learn from the work they do and be aware of recycling. The alternative proposed to create housing for the humblest people is also very good.

  • I had already heard, but I wasn't quite sure what to expect... Frankly what makes this woman and this family is just amazing. A house in a bottle, a purse, toys for children, etc... Not only they are not lacking creativity but also and they bring their knowledge to the people who are in need.
