The civil engineer stated that the discarded bottles are gathered from different dumps in Kaduna. He added that during the collection, nobody took them seriously, asking why they were busy collecting waste around.
Ahmed disclosed that what they set out on drew so much attention that people wanted to really see how it would turn out.
He said building the house was very cost-effective when compared to the ones made with cement. Explaining the advantage of the house, he revealed that the temperature is cooler inside.
According to him, there is no need for AC when living in that kind of structure, adding that it saves more on energy cost.
Ahmed added that modern structures can be done with the same material and not just like the one he built. The builder said the introduction would go a long way in tackling the waste problem Kaduna state is facing.
