Steve Areen’s $9,000 Thailand Dome Home

Steve Areen, a world traveler who has been visiting remote locations around the world, decided to put down a few roots in northeast Thailand. These roots grew into one of the most beautiful dome homes you may ever see. This work of art (that only cost $9,000 to build) sits in the middle of a mango farm that belongs to Steve’s friend Hajjar Gibran.” – Kent

R2x20 – A Simple Container Home in Thailand

The one-bedroom, one bathroom home was built using two, 20-foot containers with cutouts for windows and doors.  There’s a prefab bathroom inside and the interior is insulated with a recycled content material.

Located in Thailand, the home features a roof layer that’s raised above the home — not unlike the roof design of the Ultimate Desert House or Cinco Camp. Seems like a great way to use passive ventilation to keep the inside of the home nice and cool.
