Broadcaster and host Lyn Ching technically lives with her in-laws—in a house inside their property, that is. The home that she shares with husband Jappy Pascual and their children, Gaby and Matty, occupies 500 square meters of the 1,200sqm lot of the Pascuals.

Initially, the couple wanted to spend their first few years as a married couple living in a condo, but Jappy thought it would be best to build a house to anticipate their family’s needs in the future. Jappy’s parents gave them the lot and even helped out in building their dwelling, going as far as hiring the services of interior designer Susan Lacson. Contractor Jade Irigo of Evi Construction also came into the picture to help complete their dream home.

Even with an interior designer in the picture, Lyn was still very hands on when it came to picking out materials and decor. She understands the importance of being involved in the process, so that their tastes are reflected in the results. The Pascual couple may have taken this all too seriously, as they came up with several requests while the project was ongoing, which incurred some delays in completion. More than a year after, they got what they wanted—a cozy home that fits their family’s needs and a reflection of who they are as a family.
