How do you juggle planning a wedding and overseeing the construction of a house? Pauleen Luna might just be the best person we can turn to for survival tips. Since her husband, comedian and TV host Vic Sotto, gave her control over the construction of their home in Laguna, Pauleen took the job seriously. While she can’t put into words how she was able to breeze through tons of processes, she was glad with the final result. The house doesn’t just look beautiful by day, it also comes to life at night. “Hindi sya biro. Ang dami mong choices. I’m sure sila [other homeowners], nilalatagan nalang ng choices. Ako, hindi. Pumupunta talaga ako do’n sa Wilcon [a warehouse store for construction materials and fixtures], at ako naghahanap no’n. Ang dami! Tsaka di mo alam kung anong babagay sa ganyan. Hindi talaga sya biro, kaya nga siguro trabaho o isang profession talaga ang pagiging homebuilder,” Pauleen relates.

With the help of architects and design professionals, the couple slowly built their dream home. It took a year and a half and they are happy that they didn’t rush it. “Magiging pangit naman kung sobra mong madaliin,” shares the actress. The home doesn’t have a specific style and highlights a mix of modern, Asian, and tropical elements. From the moment you step in, you’ll be greeted by natural light and an impressive art collection. Vic specifically wanted a clean and maaliwalas home—with plants and paintings adding life to each area.
