There's nothing better than design with a cause, and that's exactly what the Soe Ker Tie Houses on the Thai Burmese border are. The project was developed with sustainability mind, and was created to house Karen refugee orphans.

The houses are simply lovely. I would like better railings on the upper floor. A few pieces of rope don't do it for me. Then again kids have it together & they probably will be perfectly OK.
