The Khuenkaews are a farming family that grows rice for personal use, and to sell for income. Buaphet's mother gave them the land on which to build their home. She and other family members live close by. The Khuenkaew's live in a wooden 728-square-foot house on stilts, surrounded by rice fields.}}.
