Build a Vacation Home for Under $500

One of the things we learned on our recently completed
Great Experiment is that economic reality is like all other realities;
strictly local in jurisdiction. Comfortably deep in an Andean valley,
nestled beneath snow capped mountains and beside a crystal mountain stream,
we watched as our sons raised a series of tourist bungalos for under
$500 each. For a quick primer on how to construct a simple house

    This is very interesting. Is there a cost for the land? How much are the utilities?

  2. Michael Feldman says:

    Of course there is a cost for the land, but it is very cheap by American standards. A lot with 30 meters of riverfront and 15-20 meters of depth (river to road) can be had for a few thousand dollars. Of course, buying land is problematic if one is not a resident or married to a citizen. Joey has plans to add 4 or 5 more cabins and is looking to buy another piece of land on the other side of the river and build a bridge.

    I feel certain that shovels are provided. That and an old copy of The New York Times should do the trick.

  16. great article thank you.

  17. My goodness that’s cheap! Quite out of date now but the same will always apply – if you look to far away places the costs can be incredible in contrast to prices in the developed world.

    You’ve got me thinking…
