When Steve Areen imagined his dream home, it wasn’t your typical white-picket-fenced mansion.
He had $9,000 and a plot of land in the middle of Thailand. He writes,In 2011 I had a wonderful visit with my friend Hajjar Gibran. For years he has inspired me with his creative ideas. This time he was building domes at his retreat center in northeast Thailand. He and his wife offered me a spot on their mango farm to build my own dome. Now the goal is to take this design ..which is quick, affordable, strong, beautiful and fun, ..and build with more sustainable materials that better insulate for colder climates. It took Steve only six weeks to go from this to his dream home.
