When most people imagine their dream home, they think of a large house with lots of rooms that cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. When Steve Areen decided to build a house, all he had was a piece of land somewhere in Thailand and $9,000. With a Thai friend’s guidance, his son-in-law’s masonry skills and a lot of work, he built his dream house within 6 weeks. He used cement blocks, clay bricks and some natural materials. The basic structure only cost about $6,000 thanks to Thailand’s cheap materials. The extra details and furnishings of the home brought the cost up another $3,000. The final effect is amazing. Check it out.
