 Strange, because the frame alone costs $2,700 in the USA.
 

However, the frames can be made with no power tools.  The

potting soil.)  Get a few folks who have time on their hands
and a bit of skill, and they could start a business.
 Presumably they would be a lot less than $2,700 under those
circumstances.
