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.|
|He invested only $6,000 dollars in the basic structure.|
|Although building materials are cheaper in Thailand than most places, it's still an amazingly low price.|
|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.|
|This is a natural stone dais for the bed.|
|The materials used to build were concrete, bricks and clay, along with natural materials.|
|The compound is made of several rounded structures.|
|The pavilion supplies an impressive tropical view to the mango plantation surrounding the house.|
|Erin didn't forget, of course, to install a hammock, it is still a vacation house in Thailand, after all.|
|The bedroom is open to the yard, in which Erin and his crew built a charming pond.|
|The warm colors and the use of natural materials make the stay comfortable and fun.|
|The stairs were built to climb the house and reach the balcony.|
|The big windows let a lot of natural light into the house.|
|The interior design of the house almost looks like a drawing.|
|The sink is made from a bamboo branch and a cermaic bowl.|
|Erin takes a moment of rest in the midst of the project.|

The ultimate vacation home.
