The couple built this house themselves — all the materials cost $ 4,600 (263,5 thousand rubles at the exchange rate on February 16, 2017). As a basis, they took the project of a German architect who planned a microdome for one student. The area of the German house is 3 by 3 meters, and Victor's is 4 by 4 meters and has a different layout.

In the fall, the family hopes to move to a new spacious house — a sketch of the interior is open on Victor's monitor. Before the construction began, the man studied modern architecture for a whole year and was interested in how the Swedes, Japanese, and Germans live. The house will have floor-to-ceiling windows, and the son will get two rooms: a bedroom and a playroom. It will be possible to move from one to the other on a stretched trampoline grid.
