When this guy thought about building his dream home, all he had to do was find a place to build it. In a few weeks, he had an awesome vacation home that could make anyone drool.
This is how it all started.
With a friend’s guidance, his son-in-law’s masonry skills and a lot of work, the team made progress quickly.
Steve Areen was given a place on his friend’s mango grove to build his home.
The basic structure only cost about $6,000.
It’s 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 a lot of dedication.
But as the project was ending, it all seemed 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.
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.
The 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, can be so gorgeous.
Every day would feel like a vacation.
When you think about the cost of building your own house, Steve Areen managed to complete it with a very low budget. In just 6 weeks, he was able to create the home of his dreams.
