Build a Family Home in Russia for Less than $10,000 (PHOTOS)
Three bedrooms upstairs, with a kitchen, bathroom, and living room downstairs
While I was visiting a family in Siberia, they showed me a building they constructed themselves for less than $10,000. They turned it into a banya (sauna), but they said it would work just as well as a small family home.
There is room for three bedrooms upstairs, with a kitchen, bathroom, and living room downstairs. There are 72 square meters of floor space, or about 750 square feet. Of course, if you would like to spend more than $10,000 on it, you can make it as big as you want.
In these audio files, he explains how they built it:
Step by step, here are photos showing how they did it:

You can do like this family did, and finish it out with banya equipment and decor to match. All together, they said it cost around 600 thousand Rubles to complete the building. At current exchange rates, that’s equivalent to about $8,000 US Dollars.
Or, if you prefer, you can add a few interior walls, dividing the upstairs into three bedrooms, and the downstairs into a kitchen, bathroom, and living room.
It would make a wonderful new home for a family!

This is great, I’m going to eventually get your highest level sub so we can talk and you can help me plan my move. My wife is a Russian citizen and I am American, we want to come home! Could really use your help and guidance :)
I got Substack because of you, Father. My wife, and I dream of selling our home, and relocating from the United States to Russia. There is no future for us, here, and every day that is proven. With how overt the hatred is for Christians. In the city that I live and work in. There is such a large homosexual and transgender population that it is almost unavoidable the level of homelessness and crime is terrible, and the police are useless.
Hopefully one day we will be able to live a quiet and simple life in Rostov. I know there are quite a few hurdles now with everything that has gone on, and there are definitely quite a few extra ones with myself and my wife with her having dialysis and chronic kidney disease.
But God willing over these next two years we will learn the Russian language, and we will escape the nightmare that is the United States. And we’ll be able to be apart of something better and maybe even apart of your community.
