A mango farm somewhere in North-East Thailand - Steve Areens…
Built area: 500 sq. ft. (46 m2) + hammock
Steve Areen went from flight steward to owner-builder of this unique home. He completed the main structural work to habitable standard in just six weeks with one full time helper and one casual hand when needed. He used a technique developed by a friend to give him a perfect sphere. He then completed the detail work himself over the next few months using only locally available materials – most of them free. The result is this beautiful home completed for just $9,000.
