Larry contacted us to show us his gorgeous creation, the Casa Maria. He built this vacation home about four years ago in Costa Rica for less than $60,000.

Including the loft space, the home comes to 764 square feet. It’s built out of cypress wood, and has asphalt roofing. Underneath the neat curved roofline of the house is a carport and laundry room. The main living space is wide-open with couches, a fireplace, kitchenette and pool table. There’s a bedroom and a bathroom, as well.

Enjoy the photo tour of Larry’s wonderful small home!
