He Started With Nothing. What He Had Just 6 Weeks Later Made Me Very Jealous

March 19, 2014

When you think "dream home" you probably envision this million dollar vacation house, but that was not the case for Steve Areen. With just $9,000 and taking only six weeks, Steve built the house of his dreams in Thailand.

In 2011 Steve Areen had a wonderful visit with his friend Hajjar Gibran in Thailand. Hajjar was building domes at his retreat center in northeast Thailand. He and his wife offered Steve a spot on their mango farm to build one.

This is how it started...
