A $9000 dome home for early retirement in Thailand
MARCH 19, 2014
A former flight attendant has grounded himself in Thailand in a masonry dome-home he built in just six weeks. Steve Areen hatched the hobbit-like home idea in 2011 while visiting a friend who was building dome homes for his Thailand retreat. Labor costs are low in Thailand, and the materials – cinder block, clay brick, and stone pavers for flooring and as decorative “tile” - were locally sourced.
