This Guy Started With Nothing. What He Had Just 6 Weeks Later Made Me Ridiculously Jealous.

When most people imagine their dream home, they probably think of a large, sprawling vacation house that cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. When Steve Areen thought about building his dream home, all he had to do was find $9,000 and a place to build. He did just that and, in a few weeks, he had a vacation home in the middle of Thailand that could make anyone drool.

In just 6 weeks, Steve was able to create the home of his dreams. With a Thai friend’s guidance, his son-in-law’s masonry skills and a lot of work, the team made progress quickly.

Steve was given a place on his friend Hajjar Gibran’s mango grove to build his home. The basic structure only cost about $6,000. In Thailand, materials are cheaper, but it’s still mind blowing to know just how little this cost to make. The extra details and furnishings of the home brought the cost up another $3,000. Totaling approximately $9,000 for the entire home.

It took elbow grease and dedication. But it seems so worth it. Not only does this dream home look cool, but the low-cost and quick building schedule is amazing.
