The house took 6 months of pregnancy, total value 1.4 billion
The dream of owning a real estate does not belong to anyone. However, not everyone can do it at a young age. But together, the couple in Hai Phong fulfilled that dream.
The house was built by husband and wife Le Giang (born in 1987) with a total value of 1.4 billion VND. It took the couple six months of pregnancy from design, construction to completion. Accompanying in this journey are many emotions from ideation to completion.
Ms. Giang shared: “My wife and I came up with ideas, drew them on paper, and groped each other to buy materials. The whole family joined forces to solve the problem that arose, and with many sleepless nights, it was completed. We also have to thank the help and support of both sides, that my husband and I have a house like this.”

If you have 600 million to start construction, the remaining amount will be borrowed from family members
Both Le Giang and his wife are people who think and act immediately. Since having a capital of 600 million, I have thought about starting to build a house. Due to the lack of money, the couple asked to borrow money from their parents and family members, so they did not earn interest. “That is also the reason why I am very grateful to my parents and relatives, because thanks to them, my husband and I have a house and a happy life like this.“, said Giang.
Talking about the design concept, the couple said that the whole thing is inspired by Indochine style. But because of one drawback is that the house has a small area, so Giang just picked up some ideas that felt most suitable and adjusted according to the family’s preferences and needs.
The house has 3 floors and 1 mezzanine. Because there is no professional design team, Giang and his wife have a hard time coming up with ideas and bidding. But after many repairs, I also received a satisfactory living space as it is now.
The living room is located on the 2nd floor. The deep brown tone is close and comfortable.
The large part of the wall is also designed with a transparent mirror to avoid the feeling of mystery.

Design and find furniture according to your taste
Giang said that this house was completely newly built by the couple. Each brick, paint color, decorative item for each space is researched by the couple, consulted in many places and selected to suit the interests and activities of the whole family.
“My wife and I order each brick and sanitary ware for each room ourselves. I ordered things from Hanoi to be transported to Hai Phong for installation. Then I also went to choose to buy decor for each room. The design is mainly hand-drawn and described for the craftsman. My work is also very busy, so the façade is done by my husband and the contractor to discuss ideas for implementation. The division of functions and interior decoration is up to me“, Ms. Giang added. Also thanks to the idea, design and shopping, both husband and wife are very satisfied with the final result.
