The $1 million bamboo house in Tay Ninh, Vietnam

The house is located in Trang Bang district, southern province of Tay Ninh, around 48km from Ho Chi Minh City. This bamboo house was offered for sale at the price of $1 million in the Wall Street Journal.

The owner of this house is Mr. Dang Cong Hao, an overseas Vietnamese who worked for Apple. Mr. Hao is currently the deputy director of the Co Xanh Company, which is specialized in manufacturing furniture and building materials made of bamboo.

In 2008, Hao bought a plot of land in Trang Bang district, Tay Ninh province with the intention to build a house made entirely of bamboo. The construction took place for more than two years to have a perfect bamboo house with four bedrooms and a bathroom.

In October 2012, Mr. Hao officially offered the house for sale for $1 million in the Wall Street Journal. Not only asking for high price, Hao also asked the future owner to live in the environmentally friendly way, interested in integrating with nature to love the house like him. So those who want to buy it must go through the interview. If they meet all the requirements and criteria set by the owner, he will transfer the house.
