THORNDIKE, MAINE -- 05/17/2017 -- Vinny Marotta, 35, bought five acres of land in Thorndike a few years ago hoping to build a small house without going into debt. "It was all forest when I started." he said about his land. He built a 10 by 10 foot building, often using repurposed materials. He continues to work on his property making improvements as he is able to afford it.
