The seven houses of Eden

I read a Midrash which explained that there are 7 houses in Gan Eden, each one
for a different type of person (i.e. converts, tzadikim,baalei teshuva,etc.),
and made from a different material. Somebody explained to me why some of the
houses were made of a certain material, but they couldnt explain to me why the
house that is made specifically for converts is made out of glass; and why do
converts have a special house in Gan Eden apart from the rest of the jews.

Thank you,
