Steve started from scratch.
With help from his friends, they quickly made progress using a combination of cement and clay bricks.
$6,000 enabled them to build the base structure. Materials are cheaper in Thailand for sure, but what you get for your money is still pretty insane.
An additional $3,000 was spent on details.
Steve’s work definitely reminds us that less is indeed more, and that spending more money doesn’t always mean better results. With limited resources, Steve turned a pile of dirt into a serene, beautiful sanctuary. What a true inspiration!
