Melissa Gorgas's dream house is coming to fruition. She is constructing a massive new house with her husband, Joe Gorga, and it appears to be approaching its final phase of construction.
According to People, the famous family sold their 9,100 square feet house in Montville, New Jersey, for $2.5 million in December 2020. The house was featured in many scenes on the Bravo reality show.
Melissa appeared on Watch What Happens Live in February 2022 to talk about her living situation. Im in a rental house right now while we are building a new house in Bergen County, in another county, according to BravoTV.com.
However, the mother of three's latest update implies that another move may not be too far off.
Melissa Gorga Shared a New Video of Her House
Melissa Gorga (@melissagorga) has shared a link to this page.
Melissa shared the progress of her new house in an Instagram video posted on July 29, 2022. The first shots showed the house's basic components when construction began, but later footage revealed detailed finished walls, decorative molding, and a massive curved staircase leading into a large foyer.
Melissa captioned the video. I love house design. I should paint the front door black?? Yes or No?
Fans responded in the comment section with suggestions for paint colors, but many others told the Bravo star to leave the gorgeous door as is.
Melissa Gorga Informed Her Husband Exactly What She Wanted
Joe Gorga explained why the couple decided to build a brand new house in a video posted by Bravo.com.
I want a new house,' Melissa said. White, new, and modern
Joe explained that on the first day of construction, he worked hard to make his wife happy. We hired an architect. We designed [it] the way we wanted exactly what Melissa desired, he said. I want a large closet. I want this, I want that, and here we go.
Melissa stated previously that the home renovation would take longer than anticipated due to COVID-19 outbreak failures.
You have no clue how long it took to get the permits to frame [the house]. It's costing us twice the amount of money and it's taking triple the amount of time to get the materials. So we're probably constructing a house in the absolute worst situation possible, but we're doing it anyway.
Melissa has stated that the new house will not be a McMansion.
Everybody wanted the huge houses. Now, you couldnt pay me to put me back in one of those bizarre structures, she said on Watch What Happens Live last year, per The New York Post. Im over it. I feel like I've gone there, I've done that.
The RHONJ star said of her new home, "It's going to be a stunning home," as we are preparing it right now. I want it to be different, a little more modern. It doesn't have to be as massive. But, of course, Joe and I are designing it, and it's going to be fantastic."
