Steve Areen built his dream home in Thailand with only $9,000 dollars. He found a place to build his home and created this incredible home. The most amazing part is he did it himself within 6 weeks. The house will be used as a vacation home in the middle of Thailand. This is incredible you have to see it yourself.
In just 6 weeks, Steve was able to create the home of his dreams.
With a Thai friend’s guidance, his son-in-law’s masonry skills and a lot of work, the team made progress quickly.
Steve was given a place on his friend Hajjar Gibran’s mango grove to build his home.
The basic structure only cost about $6,000.
In Thailand, materials are cheaper, but it’s still mind blowing to know just how little this cost to make.
The extra details and furnishings of the home brought the cost up another $3,000.
Totaling approximately $9,000 for the entire home.
It took elbow grease and dedication.
But it seems so worth it.
Not only does this dream home look cool, but the low-cost and quick building schedule is amazing.
Cement blocks and clay bricks were used to build the home, as well as some natural materials.
If he had the chance to build the home again, Steve said that he would use compressed earth blocks.
Whether it’s a home away from home or your new family residence, this dome would be perfect.
Imagine spending long afternoons swinging on your rooftop hammock.
Or gazing into your backyard pond, filled with beautiful lilies.
The dome is full of windows and natural light, really helping the house become one with nature.
On the outside of the house, Steve built steps up to the roof, you can climb the entire house if you’d like to.
Inside, all of the accents are natural.
His shower is the big stone mosaic you see here.
And the bathroom sink is made of natural bamboo and other materials.
It’s hard to believe something so cheap, relative to housing prices here, could be so gorgeous.
Every day would feel like a vacation.
With the help of Hajjar Gibran his friend that helped Steve build his home. Learn more about the process of building this home at his website.
