Steve Areen's Thailand Dome Home is as Custom as it Gets

Thailand Dome Home.

We have been building custom homes in Edmond and Oklahoma City since 1988, so we’ve not only been through the process, but we’ve seen many creative custom homes in the last 26 years. Then we came across a story that went viral a few months ago – the headline reads: Steve Areen Builds Perfect Dream Dome Home In Thailand For Less Than $10,000.

We’ve got to say, we have never seen anything quite like this. And all for less than $10,000? And built in just six weeks? We’ve got to hand it to Mr. Areen, because he did a great job. His story and picture gallery can be found on his website, but here are a few pictures from the building process of his dome home; be prepared, because you may want to move to cost-friendly Thailand to build your own dome after this.

Everything looks pretty amazing, right? Maybe we’ll start building custom dome homes in Edmond and OKC! For more photos of Steve’s amazing home and his building process, check out his website’s gallery.
