It will probably be tough to say goodbye to the LaValle family basement — as babysitters and family are right upstairs to help out the new guido couple — but we know Snooki and Jionni are itching for a place of their own to raise their son, Lorenzo, and enjoy their lives as a new family, independent of Jionni’s parents.

Back in December, Snooki revealed that she and Jionni had purchased land in New Jersey a mere 10 minutes away from the LaValle home. The project was estimated to take about “a year and a half to build,” and in the meantime, Snooks and her fiancé have been thinking up some cool ideas for their future dream house.

What will this new house be like? We envisioned tons of space for Lorenzo to play as well as cool amenities like big closets and maybe a hot tub for the grown-ups to enjoy. And in a recent interview with xoJane, Snooki gave us some new insight into what her custom dream pad will be like.

Snooks explained that though she and Jionni could have bought a house, they wanted to make it on their own and design it themselves with the help of an architect. She revealed that she wants “to live there until the kids graduate,” and envisions “a big playroom downstairs for the kids...a big backyard, a pool,” and a big kitchen for Sunday dinners with the family. Sounds amazing!

Until the house is finished, Snooki and Jionni will hold off their wedding plans so they can get married and go right back to their house (and “get pregnant again,” she adds). We can’t wait to see what the finished project will look like. Hopefully we’ll get some sneak peeks on design and blueprints from Snooki until then. We’re thinking animal print... everywhere!
