This Cool Dome-Shaped House Only Cost $9,000 to Build and Furnish

A 500 square-foot home isn't huge, but when you live in a tropical paradise like a Thai mango plantation, you don't need much to be comfortable -especially when your tiny home even comes equipped with a small pond and a gazebo. 

Impressively, Steve Areen built this home for only $9,000 -including the impressive stonework and furnishings inside. It's also made from locally sourced concrete and clay bricks although Areen now hopes to build more dome houses that are even more sustainable with pressed earth bricks.

I live in a tropical country near Thailand, though not in a mango plantation, and that house looks to be tortuously hot in summer. Call me old-fashioned but I would much rather live in a boxy house with AC.

Not to mention that the pond would attract dengue and malaria-carrying mosquitoes.

And one wonders how it handles typhoons and tropical storms. Just sayin'...
