Steve Arin built his own house in Thailand. It took him 6 weeks and $ 9,000. A friend of his ceded part of his land to a mango plantation. The price of the home was actually $ 6,000, and the remaining $ 3,000 for pain for finishing details and furniture. He used cement blocks and bricks for the construction. "Keep in mind that this is Thailand and it's cheaper here," says Arin. He plans to build a detailed house in Oregon, USA.
