This man started by drawing a circle on the ground, and within only six weeks managed to create an amazing vacation home in the middle of a mango plantation in Thailand. This is what a private paradise looks like.

When most people imagine their dream home, a magnificent villa, costing millions of dollars comes to mind. Steve Erin, on the other hand, made an incredible house for less than $10,000 dollars.

The whole process began with a simple marking on the sand. 6 weeks from this moment, you won't be able to recognize the place.

Erin got a little piece of land in the middle of a friend's mango plantation to build his dream vacation house.

He was helped by local friends, the building skills of a relative and a lot of effort to get the project ahead as soon as possible.

To finish the small details and furnish the cabin, they invested another $3,000. That means the whole project was made for the low low price of about $9,000 dollars. This required a lot of personal effort, creativity and improvisation. But when you see the final result, you understand it was worth every drop of sweat.
